The Miami Marlins dropped a series to the Chicago Cubs with a 6-1 loss on Wednesday.
Giancarlo Stanton left the game in the seventh inning with a left wrist contusion. The injury appeared to occur during a collision with the outfield wall. The slugger is listed as day-to-day.
Nathan Eovaldi returned to the team from the paternity list after the birth of his son. The right-hander looked sharp for the most part but fell apart in the sixth inning. In that frame, the Cubs scored four times.
Eovaldi allowed five runs on nine hits in his six-plus innings. He would come out for the seventh but gave up a lead-off double to the opposing pitcher which ended Eovaldi's day
Jacob Turner's struggles continued with a poor relief appearance. Turner gave up a run on four hits in two innings of work to extend the lead for the Cubs.
Stanton hit his 20th home run of the year in the first inning. That blast would end up being the only run production for Miami.
Adeiny Hechavarria benefitted from hitting in front of Stanton again with two more hits. The shortstop had six hits total in the last two games of the series out of the two-slot in the lineup.
The Marlins will open a series with the New York Mets on Thursday. Top prospect Andrew Heaney is scheduled to make his major league debut.
