At a glance: The Cubs were 2-4 against the Marlins last year, 0-3 in Miami. Never mind some of the pitching records here. The Marlins' Slowey has a 1.90 ERA. For the Cubs, Wood is at 2.08, and Villanueva is at 1.53. The Marlins (5-16) are a mess offensively. They rank last in the NL in batting average, home runs and batting average. Giancarlo Stanton, who is scheduled to play after nursing a bad shoulder, is without a homer and has 3 RBI. Justin Ruggiano leads Miami with 3 homers and 10 RBI.
