The Cubs’ bats went quickly and quietly in a 3-2 loss to the San Diego Padres Wednesday afternoon.
Ian Happ homered off of reliever Craig Stammen in the fourth after the Padres’ starter, Miguel Diaz, left the game with a sore forearm. Happ’s 10th of the season made it 2-0. Stammen would get Tommy La Stella and the Padres’ ‘pen would do the same to the next 15 Cubs, in order.
San Diego would begin chipping away at the lead painfully slow until Koji Uehara walked in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning.
The failed sweep attempt sends the Cubs to Miami with a bitter taste in their mouthes but Jake Arrieta gets the chance to do something about it in his 15th start of the season.
Arrieta hasn’t made it through the fifth inning in either of his last two starts. You have to go back three starts – against the Marlins – when Arrieta won and threw six innings. He gave up a pair of hits and runs against the Fish in that one.
The Marlins have a different sort of feeling after stealing one our of the hands of Max Scherzer, 2-1.
Mad Max was throwing a no-hitter in the eighth inning when things started to come undone. He gave up an infield hit to AJ Ellis that he deflected but couldn’t glove.
Then with two out, JT Realmuto hit an inning-ending ground ball but Adam Lind couldn’t handle Trey Turner’s throw from short. The official scorers gave Lind an error and the inning continued.
You know where this is going now. Dusty Baker stuck with his starter, who had thrown well over 100 pitches by this point. Scherzer hit Dee Gordon, threw a wild pitch with the bases loaded and then gave up the go-ahead single to Giancarlo Stanton. Neither of the runs were earned.
Jeff Locke makes his fifth start of the season after returning from injury at the start of the month. The Marlins haven’t won a game he has started yet and he’s 0-2, personally.
Locke hasn’t given up more than three runs in an outing but he also hasn’t recorded more than 17 outs. He threw at Wrigley Field in the first week of this month and gave up four runs (three earned) in 4.2 innings.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: they send it over.
I’ve only got this ‘capped at 9.5 but the beauty of 9.0 in this spot is that both sides just have to push across four. Miami should have enough looks against the Cubs’ bullpen to get there.
