  • Preview: Marlins at Cubs, Wednesday, 2:20 pm

Kris Bryant homered for a second consecutive day for the Cubs, hitting a two-run homer in the first inning. Rizzo drove in five runs with a homer and two doubles. In the seventh inning, shortstop Miguel Rojas hit a two-run shot to left center field. That broke a Marlins streak of having won four consecutive series before arriving in Chicago. He lasted only two innings as he gave up three runs in the first inning, two coming on a homer by former Cubs farmhand Justin Bour. What's even more special is it came on the three-year anniversary of his first Major League Baseball homer.

Carlos Martinez (3-2) saw his stretch of six straight starts allowing one or fewer runs end. The eight-run inning he allowed was the worst of his seven-year career. However, Chen looked shaky in his last outing and the Cubs have owned the first two games of the set, looking like the better team in both. In his career, Quintana is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and 2 strikeouts against Miami.

Mets 7, Reds 6 - At Cincinnati: Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer in his old home stadium and Adrian Gonzalez connected twice, powering NY over Cincinnati.

Chicago poured it on from there, scoring seven more runs in the inning against Wei-Yin Chen to go up 9-0 while sending 11 batters to the plate. Five of those hits went for extra bases. Bryant knocked in an RBI double. Javier Baez singled, and then Rizzo unloaded his homer.

Third baseman David Bote's sacrifice fly drove in catcher Willson Contreras.

Caratini was in the middle of a tense moment in the Miami fourth, when Dietrich got thrown out by right fielder Ben Zobrist attempting to score from second on Lewis Brinson's single.

Bryant came in with the tying run in the sixth when he got hit by a pitch from Jose Urena and scored when Caratini grounded into a force.

Led by a strong pitching performance from Jake Odorizzi and a two-run home by Eduardo Escobar, Minnesota beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 on Tuesday for a season-high fifth straight victory. Catcher Bryan Holaday added a solo home run in the ninth, but it was not almost enough.
