Chicago couldn’t add to their 1 run in the last game but allowed the Marlins 5 runs in the 7th. They only made 4 hits in the game and struggled hard offensively. Ian Happ got their only point with a solo homer in the 5th to go along with his 2 hits. Happ carried the team in offense during the regular season with 51 hits, 28 RBIs, and 12 homers at .258 BAA. The Cubs have the 10th best bullpen in the league with a 3.99 team ERA while their offense ranks low in the league with only 265 runs made while their team BAA is at .220 in 27th place. The Cubs finished in 4th place in the National League with a 34-26 record and are 1st in the NL Central Division. Yu Darvish will be on the mound for the Cubs in game 2. He recorded 8-3 with a 2.01 ERA and 93 strikeouts in the regular season.

Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs. The MLB’s pick to win the 2nd game is the Miami Marlins +165. Darvish on the mound should be plus points here for the Cubs. Sanchez for the Marlins isn’t too bad either and he can certainly be deadly on the mound. It is especially good for the Marlins since the Cubs have no experience batting against Sanchez. Miami’s makeshift team has made it this far after their unlucky start for the season with COVID issues but they are here now with 1 win away from moving to the next stage. The Cubs will drain the Marlins to a predicted score of 5-3.
