4/12 Post-game notes
* Starlin Castro extended his hitting streak to six games with his home run in the fifth. He now has four multi-hit games in that stretch.
* Dioner Navarro led off the ninth with a pinch-hit home run off Sergio Romo. It was Navarro’s first career pinch-homer and first by a Cubs player this year.
* David DeJesus notched his second three-hit game of the season, and has nine hits in his last five games.
* Carlos Villanueva has left with the lead in both of his starts, but does not have a decision yet.
* Despite blowing the save, Kyuji Fujikawa picked up his first Major League win Friday, and also got a celebratory beer shower.
* On Saturday, Jeff Samardzija will start in Game 3 of the Cubs’ four-game series against the Giants, facing lefty Madison Bumgarner. First pitch scheduled for 12:05 p.m. CT.
