The Miami Marlins took the first of this three-game set over at historic Wrigley Field, as Henderson Alvarez delivered everything necessary to win the game. But can Tom Koehler match that for the Marlins tonight versus Edwin Jackson and the Chicago Cubs?

The Marlins have Tom Koehler, who was always mediocre. The Cubs have Edwin Jackson, who surprisingly has been mediocre this year despite a solid FIP and peripherals. The performance is not what the Cubs were expecting when they gave Jackson that long-term deal he had been searching for.

Chris Coghlan makes his first start at third base tonight. Here's hoping he's fantastic there.
Bold Prediction: Cubs def. Marlins 4-3
