Marlins-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have languished offensively of late, but they inspired some optimism with a better showing their last time out.

They'll look for another improved performance Friday against the visiting Miami Marlins, who have fared surprisingly well since losing Giancarlo Stanton.

Chicago (42-35) had scored two runs or fewer in eight consecutive games before winning 6-1 against the New York Mets on Thursday, completing a three-game sweep at Citi Field. Though the Cubs fell to 9 for 65 with runners in scoring position over the last nine contests, Starlin Castro and Miguel Montero were both 2 for 5, with Montero and Jonathan Herrera homering.
