The Chicago Cubs pulled off a comeback for the ages on Sunday, but they’ll have no time to catch their collective breath as a new series against the Miami Marlins awaits on Monday.

- The Marlins have gone OVER in 5 straight games.
- The UNDER is 9-4 in Hendricks’ last 13 home starts.
Adam Conley and Kyle Hendricks are slated to get the ball. Conley (7-5, 3.38 ERA) extended his unbeaten streak to five starts on Wednesday against the Phillies. The Washington native has allowed fewer than three earned runs in each outing during his streak.
Hendricks (9-7, 2.39) had his six-start unbeaten streak snapped against the White Sox on Tuesday. The 26-year-old is 7-1 with a 1.36 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 11 contests at home this year. He’s split his two career decisions against the Fish.
Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki looks to join Stan Musial as the only players in baseball history to register their 3000th career hit at Wrigley Field. The veteran is two hits shy of the milestone.
