Miami closed strong over the weekend, winning the final three games in its series with Arizona, including the finale, 6-5.
Tyler Moore hit a three-run homer in the second inning and the Marlins scored the only run after the two teams combined for 10 runs in the first five innings. The Miami bullpen strung together 5.1 scoreless innings after Vance Worley’s short afternoon.
The Fish hit the road now and Dan Straily will face his third different NL Central opponent after spending the last season in Cincinnati.
He threw well against Pittsburgh (5.1 IP, 3 ER) and even better against St. Louis (7 IP, 1 ER). Straily’s been tough all season, against all opponents, really.
He gave up five earned in his first start of the season against the Nationals and four in his first start of May at Tampa Bay. He’s given up three runs three times, two twice and one and zero twice each in his other nine starts. Opponents are hitting .195 against him and his WHIP is 1.12.
The Cubs responded to a worrying sweep at the hands of the Padres by sweeping the Cardinals over the weekend.
Jon Jay broke a tie against his former club with an RBI single in the seventh inning last night that proved to to be the decisive run in a 7-6 win on Sunday Night Baseball.
Eddie Butler takes his turn on Monday. He showed his first sign of vulnerability in his last start against San Diego when he gave up seven hits and six earned runs before coming out of the game in the middle of the fifth inning.
The former Rockie had provided some brief stability to that fifth spot in the Cubs’ rotation before that but some wondered how long it would last.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Miami scores early, Cubs score late.
The one issue Straily has had this season is with pitching deep into games. Miami’s ‘pen has been up and down and it faces a challenge on the road to start this week.
The Marlins, meanwhile, shouldn’t have trouble putting a few runs on the board in the first half of the game against Butler.
