Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Marlins (6:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The race to the bottom continues tonight, with the (10th pick in the draft) Cubs heading to Miami to face the (5th pick in the draft) Marlins. The Marlins have a 3.0 game lead over the Cubs in this particular contest, so it’s not actually an inconsequential series.

But set that aside.

Tonight, I’ll be focusing on Adbert Alzolay and his continued development. His last start, against the White Sox, was a good one: 6.2 IP, 6H, 2ER, 0BB, 7Ks. And it’s not like that’s a weak lineup or a team with nothing to play for. Let’s hope he continues to make some progress against lefties and otherwise stays healthy. Go Cubs.
