6/2 Saving face vs. Pirates

Since 1969, when the save became an official stat, the most saves against the Cubs in a season was seven by Todd Worrell of the Cardinals in 1988 and Billy Wagner of the Astros in 2002. Octavio Dotel is the first Pirates pitcher with five saves in a season against the Cubs
since Dave Giusti had five in 1972. Roy Face of the Pirates was retroactively credited with eight saves against the Cubs in 1962.

Thanks to Cubs historian Ed Hartig for the info.
