Carlos Marmol walked the bases loaded before Greg Dobbs clubbed a three-run double in part of a six-run ninth inning as the Marlins rallied to crush the Cubs, 6-3, on Thursday night at Wrigley Field. Gaby Sanchez, Hanley Ramirez and Mike Cameron each plated a run during the decision frame for Florida, which has won six games in-a-row. Edward Mujica was credited with the win. Marlon Byrd blasted a solo home run and Geovany Soto went 4-for-4 for the Northsiders, who went into the ninth inning leading 2-0. Matt Garza struck out six through seven scoreless frames in a no-decision. Marmol finished with four walks and five earned runs on one hit without recording an out to absorb the loss. Ryan Dempster will toe the rubber opposite Ricky Nolasco in this afternoon's second installment.
