RECENT TRENDS

Covers Preview - The San Francisco Giants might not be eager to get back to Wrigley Field on Wednesday after an unsettling loss a night earlier. The Giants look to regain their hold on the National League's final wild-card spot when they continue a three-game series against the host Chicago Cubs. The Cubs claimed the opener in odd fashion, winning 2-0 in five innings after the grounds crew's failure to properly place the infield tarp during a brief period of heavy rain resulted in an unplayable surface.
