Tyler Chatwood is the first Cubs pitcher since Carlos Zambrano in 2007 to walk five or more batters in six different starts. Of course, Zambrano did it over the course of a whole season while Chatwood has done it before Memorial Day. The six starts of walking 5 or more are twice as many as any other pitcher in baseball this season.

Kyle Schwarber was kicked out of the game by home plate umpire John Tumpane after arguing a called strike 3 that looked high. He and Tumpane began arguing before Javy Baez got in between them to help settle Schwarber down. Joe Maddon then had his say with the umpire also. Schwarber had a questionable strike 1 call on him in the previous at-bat as well.
