Andrew McCutchen's 14 intentional walks, entering Tuesday's game, are the most for the Pirates since Brian Giles received free passes 24 times in 2002.
Jose Tabata (353 plate appearances prior to Tuesday's start) and Alex Presley (326) are among the Major League leaders for the most plate appearances this season without a sacrifice fly.
The Bucs' Minor League affiliates ended their 2012 seasons with a collective record of 431-406. The winning percentage of .515 is 10th best among the Majors' 30 organizations.
Both the 10:42 CT p.m. start and 1:28 a.m. end of the "Monday night" game against the Cubs were the latest in Wrigley Field history, by nearly an hour. (Lights didn't invade Wrigleyville until 1988.)
