Marlins rally as Marmol implodes

CHICAGO — Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs delivered a two-run double against closer Carlos Marmol, and the Marlins scored six times in the ninth to rally for a 6-3 victory over the Cubs on Thursday that extended their season-high winning streak to six games.

The Marlins trailed 2-0 before sending 11 batters to the plate in their final at-bat.

Former Ray Matt Garza threw seven scoreless innings for Chicago, and Sean Marshall worked the eighth. But Marmol unraveled while picking up his seventh blown save in 26 chances.

He walked Mike Stanton, Mike Cameron and John Buck, throwing one strike in the process, and Dobbs, batting in the pitcher's spot, hit a double into the rightfield corner.

Dewayne Wise, running for Buck, slipped between home and third but scored when second baseman Darwin Barney's relay bounced past catcher Geovany Soto for a throwing error that gave Florida a 3-2 lead.
