• 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.)
