This is the final home stand of the season, so if you want to get out and see the Fish one more time, these three games are your last shot. That is assuming you are not planning on going to New York for the final three of the season.
The Cubs are in town and will be trying to secure a playoff berth.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.
The Cubs will trot out Ted Lilly to the hill.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Willis pitched very well in his last start but didn't come away with the win, thanks to the bullpen. His velocity was up and he looked more like the Dontrelle we have all come to know and love on the mound. Willis won his previous start against the Cubs this season.
Lilly is a lefty and has been excellent in his last six starts. Allowing no more than three earned runs in any of the the six. He walks very few and strikeouts a bunch but the good news is giving up the long ball is in his repertoire.
For all things Cubs related, go to Bleed Cubbie Blue.
