• The Cubs matched their win total from last season (61) with Monday's 2-0 victory over the Reds.
• Although the Cubs didn't see Reds speedster Billy Hamilton on Monday, manager Dale Sveum is prepared for him, and he hopes his team is, too.
"We know what he's going to do," Sveum said. "He's going to steal a base or try to steal a base, and if you get too caught up in that sometimes, you're going to make bad pitches. You don't want that to happen. The bottom line is, if he's on first base, the main priority is still get the hitter out."
