Cubs' third baseman Ian Stewart hit his first home run with the Cubs, which was also his first since Aug. 23, 2010. I joke about that a lot," Stewart said. "It's one of the first things I said. I almost haven't hit a home run in two seasons. It was nice to finally get that one."
First baseman Bryan LaHair hit his first career grand slam in the third inning. It was the Cubs' first grand slam since Aramis Ramirez hit one on October 2, 2010 in Houston.
