This NL matchup includes two teams that are looking to make a big time playoff push. The Miami Marlins lineup has been reconstructed with Dee Gordon coming back off of suspension.
The Chicago Cubs have stood at the top of the league for most of this season, and what a win they had tonight on Sunday night baseball over a pretty good Mariners club.
The Miami Marlins lineup has been up and down for most of the season. They are led by Martin Prado.
Prado is hitting .324 on the season with 24 doubles and 43 RBIs. Christian Yelich is hitting .317 while hitting 40 extra base hits and 57 runs batted in.
Giancarlo Stanton, the home run derby champion, is off to another monster year in the makings. Stanton is hitting .244 with 22 bombs to go with 60 RBIs.
The Marlins look to go up against Hendricks who has been rolling.
The Marlins have Adam Conley on the bump Monday night. Conley is currently 7-5 on the season with a 3.38 E.R.A. and 112 strikeouts.
Conley was victorious in his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies. Conley pitched in 6.2 innings of work where he gave up 0 runs in the start on 8 hits.
Conley walked 3 and struck out 6 batters in the win. Look for Conley to work to put back to back quality starts up here going into August.
The Chicago Cubs lineup has been very strong for most of this season. They are led by Kris Bryant in the season where he is out for a MVP campaign.
Bryant is hitting .286 on the season with 26 home runs and 68 RBIs. Anthony Rizzo is hitting .283 on the season with 55 extra base hits and a team high 79 runs batted in.
Ben Zobrist is hitting .280 with 20 doubles to go along with 53 RBIs. The Cubs lineup looks to get on track going into the postseason next month.
The Cubs have Kyle Hendricks on the mound and he has been one of the most promising starters in this Cubs rotation lately. Hendricks is currently 8-8 on the season with a 2.39 E.R.A. and 103 strikeouts.
He took the loss in his last start in the crosstown rivalry against the White Sox. Hendricks gave up 3 earned runs on 6 hits against the Sox.
He also walked 2 batters and struck out 7 in the loss. He will look to bounce back and get back on track here.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
This one could be a possible playoff matchup coming up in a little over a month. I look for the Cubs to take this one and Hendricks will bounce back from his slip up last week.
Hendricks will be able to control the game enough in this one in order to take the win. I look for the Cubs to dominate Conley on the mound in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs Runline
This Cubs lineup is very good and I do not think Conley will be able to check them for a complete start. I think the Cubs in this one, it shouldn’t be that close.
