Cubs slide past Marlins behind great bullpen work

The Chicago Cubs and Miami Marlins got into what looked to be a benches-clearing brawl on Tuesday night after a contentious play at the plate. Third baseman Kris Bryant has hit safely in six straight games after homering on Sunday but is just 6-for-37 over his last 10 contests.

Rizzo has put forth a great start to the month of May after a forgettable April.

"You have good days and you have bad days", said Russell, who didn't have a home run this season - and only eight extra-base hits - until Wednesday's 13-4 rout of the Marlins. Follow our Facebook page to get updates on your news feed!

Like he did just a week ago when the Cubs were riding high on a five-game winning streak, team president Theo Epstein waited for reporters to surround him Monday afternoon.

Bryant drew a leadoff walk from Kyle Barraclough (0-2) in the eighth, took second on a wild pitch and moved to third on Anthony Rizzo's grounder. On Saturday, he gave up four runs on five hits with four walks over four innings against the Cincinnati Reds.

"We're in Iowa watching those (Cubs) games and those at-bats with these guys", said infielder David Bote, who was promoted Tuesday for the second time. - Marlins manager Don Mattingly. Facing a much more talented team on the road and a pitcher with undeniably good stuff, the Marlins are obvious underdogs in this one.

Baez dealt with hamstring tightness during spring training.

Cubs: 2B Javier Baez was back in the lineup after coming off the bench on Monday because of a tight right groin. RHP Mike Foltynewicz (2-2, 3.65) starts for Atlanta.

The Cubs went with a bullpen committee to finish Tuesday's game, with newly recalled Rob Zastryzny following Tseng into the game.
