Worth noting

Second baseman Darwin Barney got a day off on Tuesday after starting the last 22 games for the Cubs. Adrian Cardenas started at second and batted eighth.

"It's just a time to get the other guys a start here," manager Dale Sveum said. "He's played a lot of games in a row again. We'll give him a little breather."

Entering Tuesday's game, Barney had appeared in 136 games, second most on the team behind shortstop Starlin Castro (141).
