The Marlins didn't have enough to take control of the series against the Cubs on Wednesday night, in a rain-shortened game that saw Miami lose to Chicago 5-1. Miami's only score came from a Jose Reyes home run and Emilio Bonifacio had some success at the plate as well.
But don't sleep on the Cubs, winners of nine of their last 11 home games, or even better: 13-5 in their last 18 games. They've been rolling, and the Marlins have to be ready to slow them down in order to shift the momentum in this series.
Josh Johnson gave up four earned runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings in a losing effort for the Marlins.
