The Cubs seek to break thier four game skid against the Marlins with Kyle Hendricks taking to the mound against Tom Koehler.  Niether men would have an easy start both giving up 4 runs in the first inning.   

Kris Bryant starts it off with his 18th home run of the season then Wilson Conteras would do the same but it would be his 3rd of the year bringing Ben Zobrist in.  Chris Coghlan would send a line drive to right for his 1st triple of the year and would score on Javier Baez’s ground ball to center.  

Addison Russell would put Derek Dietrich with a fielding error.  Kyle would walk the Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton to load the bases.  On an 0-1 count Kyle would toss one up for Justin Bour for his 13th home run for a grand slam to tie the game.  

Hendricks would last four more innings before Trevor Cahill would enter the game.  Trevor Wood comes into the 7th makes it into the 8th to hold it for Hector Rondon.  

Koehler would make it through 6 to be replaced by Mike Dunn who would only last a third of an inning walking Bryant, then hits Zo.  Contreras would send a line drive to center field putting the Cubs ahead by 1.  Nick Wittgten gets the Marlins out of the inning. 

Aside from the one run, both bullpens would stop the other from adding more to the board but The Cubs break their losing streak.  

Go Cubs Go!
