Extra bases

• The Cubs reached double-digit strikeouts on Tuesday and Wednesday against the Brewers, fanning 14 times in the first game and 15 in the second. It's the first time since May 30 (14) and May 31 (23) of 2003 that the team reached at least 14 in back-to-back games. The May 31 game went 16 innings.

"Most strikeouts are going to be away and soft, and we've got to really start grinding a little more and take that part of the plate away from people," manager Dale Sveum said.
