* Sunday’s shutout was the first in 43 games for the Cubs.

* Alfonso Soriano was batting .311 this month with six doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs. That’s a big improvement after batting .237 in April.

* Matt Garza is one of six pitchers in the big leagues with a 2.58 ERA or less in at least seven starts but two wins or less to show for the effort.
