  • While the Marlins have potential, their struggles on both offense and defense make it difficult for them to overcome the Cubs' strong performance, especially with Imanaga on the mound.
  • With their solid pitching and offensive capabilities, coupled with the home-field advantage, the Cubs are well-positioned to secure a win at Wrigley Field.
