9/7 Extra bases

* The Cubs look to win three-straight for the first time since sweeping the Giants in San Francisco, July 26-28. They also are trying to win three-straight games in a single homestand for the first time since May 29-31 vs. the White Sox (2-0) and Diamondbacks (1-0).

* With Justin Grimm’s season debut Friday, the Cubs have utilized 53 players, tying the franchise single-season record done a season ago. Still looking to make their season debuts are catcher J.C. Boscan and pitchers Daniel Bard and Chang-Yong Lim.

* The Cubs rank second in the Majors with 95 home runs at home. The Orioles lead MLB, having hit 100 at Camden Yards. The Cubs’ 95 home runs at Wrigley are their most at home since hitting 106 in 2008.
