CHI 2, MIA 1; Cabrera Fantastic, Offense Anemic

CHICAGO, IL—The Marlins fell 2-1 to the Chicago Cubs in front of a surprisingly electric Friday afternoon crowd of 35,689.

In case you had any doubt, Wilson Contreras demonstrated why he was an All-Star starter for a reason. The Marlins pitching staff had 2-hit the Cubs through 7 13 innings before he came to the plate. Miami was leading 1-0, needing just 5 more outs to secure the second straight shutout. That was not in the cards. Contreras took a Dylan Floro 85 MPH changeup below the zone 396 feet to left-center, parking it in the Wrigley Field bleachers.
