Only five players have more walks than strikeouts this season, and two of them play for Miami. Carlos Lee has drawn 29 walks while racking up 22 strikeouts, and Jose Reyes has 40 walks and 36 strikeouts. The other players in the group are Boston's David Ortiz (56/49), Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist (62/55) and Cincinnati's Joey Votto (66/65).
Lee's grand slam against the Cubs on Tuesday was the 17th of his career, tying him with Jimmie Foxx and Ted Williams for seventh on the all-time list. He is second among active players in grand slams, trailing only the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod has hit 23, tied with Lou Gehrig for most in history.
The Marlins are 28-11 this season when their pitcher goes at least seven innings. They have won each of their last seven games when the starter lasts that long.
