In 1964 , Larry Jackson won twenty-four games for the Chicago Cubs , the most in a single season by a Cubbie since Charlie Root won twenty-six games thirty-seven years earlier. No Cub pitcher has ever won more games in a single season since Jackson, and only one has tied that mark - do you know who? [ Answer ]

Did you know that Larry Jackson (1964) and Mordecai Brown (1908) are the only two Chicago Cubs pitchers to not commit a single error during a season, yet handle more than 100 total chances (Putouts + Assists + Errors)? The fielding feat is actually quite rare, having been duplicated by only four other National League pitchers; Kid Nichols (1896), Eppa Rixey (1917), Hal Schumacher (1935) and Randy Jones (1976).
