Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs lost to the Marlins 2-0 despite outhitting them 6 to 3 as a season long trend against right handed pitching continued. They mustered a couple rallies against starter Jose Urena but never got the big two out hit they needed. Giancarlo Stanton did produce a big one, though, as he crushed a HR off John Lackey for the first run of the game. The Cubs hit into three double plays including one to end the game.

Kyle Hendricks should throw either Saturday or Sunday as he recovers from tendinitis in his right hand. The Cubs want him pain free. They are hopeful he'll be back before the all-star break.

The Cubs haven't gotten off to the start everyone expected this season, but the defense has come through once again. And though the offense is struggling, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo are still dangerous.

Russell's homer sends a fan home happy (0:36)

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs jumped all over Marlins pitching compiling 16 hits en route to a 11-1 blowout win. Both Addison Russell and Ian Happ had four hits a piece while Russell, Kris Bryant and Willson Contreras all went deep. Only Albert Almora Jr and newcomer Mark Zagunis failed to get a hit among the starting nine as even Jake Arrieta contributed with two base knocks. But it was his pitching which stood out even more as he lasted 7 innings for the first time since April 9. He gave up a HR to Marcell Ozuna on a 3-0 pitch in the second then shut the door on the Marlins who managed 6 hits off him without a free pass.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Addison Russell and Ian Happ each have 4 hits as the Cubs are blowing out the Marlins. Russell has two doubles, a HR and a single as the Cubs top five hitters in the lineup have combined for 12 hits, 3 walks and 9 runs driven in. It's Happ's first, 4 hit game of his career.
