Cubs head south to start the summer. Jon Lester is on the mound taking on Wei-Yin Chen. Lester is looking for win number 10 in his first meeting in Miami.
Lester would make it through three innings without any damage. The fourth inning he would give up the first hit as a single but it would be Giancarlo Stanton’s solo home run for the first run. He’d give up another solo shot in the sixth to Marcell Ozuna for the second run. He’d only give up those 2 runs through 7 innings averaging 7 K’s per inning.
The Cubs would strike first in the 4th with a single by Jason Heyward that brought him to third on a fielding error. Kris Bryant would drive him in a sac fly to left. The Northsiders wouldn’t grab another run until the top of the 8th when David Ross would launch his 8th home run of the season tieing the game st 2 which should lead us to extra innings.
Pedro Strop enters the game in the 8th getting the first out but gives up a walk to Christian Yelich who scores on Stanton’s ground ball to right. J.T. Realmuto would drive in Stanton to put the Marlins up by 2. Strop gets out of the inning without any further damage but ends up with a loss as the Cubs couldn’t rebound in the top of the ninth.
Thats four in a row, the bats are on a break but we still have time.
Go Cubs Go!
