The Cubs get a quick rematch against the Marlins, who swept them on the road to end the month of April. This time, the Cubs are reinforced by designated hitter and first baseman Matt Mervis, who is likely to make his MLB debut, and catcher Miguel Amaya, who debuted on May 4 collecting his first MLB RBI on a sac fly but still in search of his first time reaching base safely. See below for the matchups in this weekend series at Wrigley.
Game 32, Friday, May 5, 1:20 pm central
MIA: RHP Edward Cabrera (2-2, 4.67 ERA)
CHC: LHP Justin Steele (4-0, 1.49 ERA)
