The Cubs are scheduled to send Cole Hamels to the mound in the finale of this three game series. In his last start against the Angels, Hamels threw 8 innings of one run ball while striking out 6. On the year he has a 2-0 record with a 3.79 ERA and 15 strikeouts.
With a win in the opener of the series, and game two yet to be played at the time of this article, the Cubs will be going for a much needed series win in this game. With Cincinnati’s loss on Monday, the Cubs have officially moved out of the cellar in the NL Central.
Miami will turn to Sandy Alcantara for the third and final game of this series. Alcantara go beat up in his last start, giving up 6 runs in only 5 innings of work. A vastly different outing than that of his first one, where he threw 8 innings of shutout baseball against the Rockies. He comes into Wednesday with a 1-1 record with a 4.24 ERA and 12 strikeouts.
After the two runs they scored in Monday’s loss, the Marlins moved out from the leagues worst in runs, surpassing San Francisco by one run. They still have a lot of work to do, as they are already 6.5 games back in what could be called the best division in baseball this year.
