The second series of the season for the Marlins and the Cubs and Adam Conley in his first start this season in Wrigley Field.  Kyle Hendricks searching for his 10th win of the season puts together his best start since May 28th against the Phillies.

Kyle pitches a complete game, his second of the year since the start against the Phils.  Kyle gives up seven hits but only walks three.  He strikes out five batters and it’s a start that the Cubs definitely needed to give the bullpen a much needed rest.

Adam Conley would not be on like Kyle.  He starts the game by walking Dexter Fowler but gets Kris Bryant to flyout.  Anthony Rizzo launches his 30th double of the year pushing Fowler to third.  With two outs, Addison Russell sends a line drive to right scoring both runners.  Jason Heyward singles and Conley loads the bases by walking Contreras but gets out the inning by striking out Matt Szczur.  The Cubs are up by two.

Conley wouldn’t allow another run through four innings but Donny Baseball decides to pull him after four and brings in Dustin McGowan for the fifth.  He gets the first out but walks Contreras and gives up a single to Matt Szczur.  Kyle Hendricks helps himself out by driving in Contreras for the third run with Szczur landing at third.  Dexter Fowler adds another run by sending a fly ball to center scored as a sacrifice.

Anthony Rizzo leads off the bottom of the sixth with a monstrous triple to right and scores on Javier Baez’s sac fly to left credited to Marlins reliever Dustin McGowan.  The Cubs would add a few more hits over the next couple of innings but they wouldn’t need to come out in the bottom of the ninth after Kyle Hendricks finishes them off.

Go Cubs Go!
