The cooled down, injured Cubs take on the Marlins in Marlins Park.
The Marlins have turned things up as of late as they’ve won 6 of their last 9 games.
The Cubs have cooled down after looking like the 73-9 Golden State Warriors to start the season or at least the MLB equivalent to that.
The Cubs have now lost 3 in a row and have won just 8 of their last 16 games.
Although .500 is not horrible, this is a severe cool down compared to how they started the season 39-15.
They are still 2nd in the league with 5.3 runs per game but this has taken a dive overall.
They’ve scored just 7 runs in their last 3 games.
Injuries to Fowler, La Stella, and Soler are clearly impacting their offensive production and chemistry. Fowler being the biggest hit who’s their lead off.
They still rank 1st in runs against as well at 3.0 runs against per game but gave up 19 in their last 4 games and were swept by the Cards at home in a 3 game series.
Hendricks takes the mound in this one and has a 2.94 era and 1.02 whip, so they hope to turn things around against the Marlins in this one.
He’s been rock solid for the Cubs. In his last 6 outings, he’s given up just 11 runs.
The Marlins are now 4 games over .500 and have been finding ways to win as of late.
They’ve scored 46 runs in their last 9 games, which is just over 5 a game. Although, it should be noted 2 of those 9 games were offensive explosions and they generally still don’t put up very many runs.
They are currently 21st in the league average 4.1 runs per game.
It’s mainly been the pitching for them that has kept them in games to pull through with the wins.
They are 7th in the MLB in this category averaging 4.1 runs against a game, which means they get as much as they give up.
They rally by putting together a good string off at bats, since they are 4th in team batting average at .271 and let the pitching do the talking.
Koehler goes in this one who has been pretty good since the start of May. He’s given up 3 at most in any given outing and just 4 runs over 18 innings in his last 3 outings combined.
He got held Colorado off the board on June 19th, which is nearly impossible to do.

This game should be a close one unless the Cubs can muster up a big game offensively, which they are still capable of despite the injuries.
Both teams have excellent pitchers going but the edge still goes to the Cubs both offensively and defensively.
