6/6 Lineup & extra bases

Let’s see if the Cubs can win two in a row. Tuesday’s 10-0 win over the Brewers was their first double-digit shutout win since July 29, 2009, a 12-0 win over the Astros. Somehow, they won despite striking out a season-high 14 times, the first time they’ve done that since Aug. 14, 2011, in a 6-5 win at Atlanta. It’s only the second time in the last 50 years that the Cubs have totaled 14 Ks and at least 10 runs in a game. They also did so in an 11-4 win over the Braves April 12, 2000, at Wrigley FIeld.

Here’s Wednesday’s lineup:

Campana CF

Castro SS

DeJesus RF

Soriano LF

LaHair 1B

Clevenger C

Barney 2B

Stewart 3B

Maholm P

* Alfonso Soriano was homer-less in his first 30 games, and now has hit nine in his last 20 games, and at least one each of the last eight series.

* Since May 28, the Cubs ‘pen leads the Major Leagues with the lowest ERA at 1.27, giving up three earned runs over 21 1/3 innings.
