Extra bases

• The Cubs arrived here around 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, but got an early wake-up call Monday as the fire alarm went off in the team's hotel around 8 a.m. ET.

"I looked out the little hole in the door and saw someone running," reliever Pedro Strop said.

He got dressed, and rushed downstairs, where he found teammates Carlos Villanueva, Travis Wood and pitching coach Chris Bosio, among others.

Turns out there was no fire. The early wake-up call wasn't that bad, Villanueva said.

"I had breakfast and went back to sleep," Villanueva said.
