Marlins Vs. Cubs Preview: Chicago Tries To Take Rubber Match On Thursday

The Chicago Cubs have put together an impressive stretch at Wrigley Field by winning nine of their last 11 games at home, and on Thursday they have a chance to win their series against the Miami Marlins with a victory in the rubber match. Paul Maholm (7-6, 4.33 ERA) will take the mound opposite Miami starter Mark Buehrle (9-8, 3.13 ERA) as each team looks to build some momentum in the second half of the season. Maholm has been good in the month of July, posting a 1.29 ERA and striking out 10 batters over 14.0 total innings, but Buehrle has been quite impressive as well recently.

Game Time: 1:20 p.m. CT

Location: Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois
