Caratini was in the middle of a tense moment in the fourth, when Dietrich got thrown out by right fielder Ben Zobrist attempting to score from second on Lewis Brinson's single.

Slumping Ian Happ had two homers and five RBIs in the series opener; slumping Willson Contreras had three extra-base hits Wednesday, including two triples; Rizzo had multi hit games in both games he played in the series; Kris Bryant went 5-for-10 with three extra-base hits in the series, including career home run No. 100 Wednesday; and Russell wound up 3-for-4 with a walk Wednesday.

As a result, the Chicago Police Department used it as an opportunity to commend Bryant and highlight the proper approach to diffusing heated situations.

The plus money with Miami is tempting, considering that The Cubs may be a bit overpriced given their recent run. Follow our Facebook page to get updates on your news feed!

But just as the two sides began to meet, Bryant reached out and tickled his former teammate Starlin Castro, who immediately buckled at the gag. Rizzo drove in five runs with a homer and two doubles. He gave up four hits and struck out three in his second major league start and third appearance. "Not the best circumstances for him, but obviously I expect him to be better than that".


"He didn't miss any bats", manager Don Mattingly said.

Miami managed two hits after the eventful start and couldn't take advantage of the Cubs, who had to cast Jen-Ho Tseng into an emergency start after scheduled starter Yu Darvish was forced to be placed on the disabled list with the flu. Prado went 2 for 10 with two RBI's against the Cubs last season, and 0 for 4 in Monday's loss. Chicago also selected RHP Justin Hancock's contract from the minor league club and recalled OF Mark Zagunis.

Baez was forced to leave Monday's game due to right groin tightness and was held out of Tuesday's starting lineup, though he did join the game as a pinch hitter.

Marlins: LHP Caleb Smith (2-3, 3.67 ERA) looks to win his third straight start as the Marlins open a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves. Marlins 3, Cubs 3.
