The Cubs lost 4-2 to the Marlins splitting the 4 game series after another frustrating day at the plate. They left 11 men on base after earning 8 hits and 7 walks. Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant combined to leave 7 on as Rizzo came up twice with the bases loaded and only managed a sac fly. Mike Montgomery didn't give up any earned runs but wasn't able to pitch around an Addison Russell error, allowing three runs to score in the first inning. Two sac flys wasn't enough offense as the Marlins take the season finale.
