Dobbs, Marlins Finish Sweep, Cubs Lose 5th in Row
MIAMI (AP) -- Greg Dobbs hit a two-run double and the Miami Marlins' strong bullpen finished off a three-game sweep of the Cubs with a 5-3 win Thursday that sent Chicago to its fifth straight loss.

Ricky Nolasco (2-0) went 5 1-3 innings for the victory. Five relievers combined to throw 3 2-3 perfect innings and Heath Bell recorded his second save in four chances.

An announced attendance of 23,168 saw the Marlins complete their first home series sweep against the Cubs since September 2007 and improve to 5-2 in their new ballpark.

Hanley Ramirez and Logan Morrison each had two hits and Emilio Bonifacio stole two bases for the Marlins, who have won five of six.
