Two of the National League's best young power hitters will square-off in
a three-game series, starting tonight when the Cubs hit Florida.

Tyler Colvin's crucial three-run bomb on Wednesday propelled the Cubs to a sweep in St. Louis -- the team's first in 22 years -- and tied him with Marlins right fielder Mike Stanton for the rookie lead in home runs with 20.

"I don't really consider myself a home run hitter," Colvin said. 
"Stanton, he's a home run hitter.  I think he's been up here for a month
and he has 20.  It'll be exciting to get (to Florida) and watch him
hit.  I think I'm going to watch him take (batting practice)."
