Cubs Beat Marlins 5-1 In Rain-Truncated Game
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jeff Samardzija knows his role with the Chicago Cubs may soon become much more prominent.
He looked up to the task on Wednesday night, battling without his best stuff as the Cubs beat the Miami Marlins 5-1 in a rain-shortened game.
Starlin Castro homered, and the Cubs batted around in a four-run seventh.
Heavy rain began falling with Miami batting in the top of the eighth and the teams never returned to the field.
