-- Times the Rockies have been held homerless in 37 career games against the Cubs at Coors Field. Colorado was held without a home run in Thursday's 7-2 loss.
-- Home runs hit by the Indians in their three-game series with the Rangers. The Texas pitching staff had served up 41 homers in its first 22 games.
-- Times Twins outfielder Matt Lawton has stolen third base this season, most in the majors. Lawton has swiped second base just once.
