5/13 Post-game notes
* Alfonso Soriano extended his hitting streak to three games with his home run on Monday. It was his 376th career blast, tying him with Carlton Fisk for 69th on MLB’s all-time list.
* Starlin Castro extended his hitting streak to four games. Welington Castillo is batting .382 in 15 home games.
* With Monday’s win over the Rockies, the Cubs have won three in a row, matching their season high. They are 11-9 since April 23.
* The Cubs totaled eight extra-base hits and lead the NL with 131. They also lead the NL in doubles.
* Kyuji Fujikawa pitched Sunday and Monday, his first back to back games since coming off the disabled list. That was by design, manager Dale Sveum said. Fujikawa will get Tuesday off, and likely pitch Wednesday. He had been sidelined with a strained right forearm.
