Pitching Matchup: Yu Darvish (0-2, 7.50 ERA) was on the mound for the Cubs against righty Trevor Richards (0-1, 2.00 ERA). Darvish has a 7.94 career ERA in three starts against the Marlins.
The Marlins are only 3-7 at home this season and have lost six out of their last seven games so this is three winnable games for the Cubs to get their footing back in the NL Central race.
The @Marlins have right-hander @trevrchrds and his sensational changeup on the mound tonight as they begin a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.— FOX Sports Florida (@FOXSportsFL) April 15, 2019

Shout out to all those running the @bostonmarathon today! I’ll never forget this day 6 years ago and how a cowardly act of hate galvanized a city through unity and strength. Thank you for continuing to run!— Jon Lester (@JLester34) April 15, 2019
