The Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Marlins Park.

The Cubs will give the ball to starter Jon Lester in this one. Left hander Lester is 4-4 this season with a 3.83 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Justin Nicolino who starts for the Marlins. Left hander Nicolino is 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA so far this season.

Lester posted his second straight quality start Monday against San Diego, allowing two runs and five hits over six innings with seven strikeouts, but he didn’t factor in the decision. The 33-year-old has struggled to a 1-3 record and a 5.85 ERA in six road starts, but he struck out 10 and allowed just one run over seven frames in his last outing away from home. Lester is 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA in four starts against the Marlins.

Nicolino came off the disabled list Monday to make his first start in nearly three weeks. The 25-year-old was not sharp against Washington, allowing six runs (three earned) in three innings, including a pair of home runs. Nicolino is just 2-6 with a 4.41 ERA in 17 games (15 starts) at Marlins Park.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 162-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Chicago Cubs were remarkably consistent during their dominant run to the World Series title a year ago considering their youth, but this season’s roller-coaster ride has been more typical of a team reliant on young talent. After offensive performances on both ends of the spectrum in the first two games of the series, the Cubs visit the Miami Marlins for the third of a four-game set Saturday afternoon.

The Cubs’ 2-0 loss Friday night marked the sixth time they’ve been shut out this season, matching their total all of last season – one night after racking up 16 hits in an 11-1 rout. Chicago’s lineup is far from full-strength at the moment with starters Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward on the disabled list and slumping slugger Kyle Schwarber at Triple-A Iowa. The Marlins have won five straight home series and are 3-2 on their current homestand, but they’ve totaled just eight runs in the past four contests. Miami’s three hits in Friday’s win marked its second-lowest hit total in a win this season and the lowest was a two-hit performance in a 2-1 win over Washington on Wednesday.

In their last action, Miami was a 2-0 winner on the road against the Cubs. Bettors on Miami at 103 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (2) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
