Dobbs Powers Marlins Past Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Greg Dobbs hit a two-run homer and drove in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded walk in the eighth inning, leading the Florida Marlins to 7-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.

After Dobbs' four-pitch walk against Kerry Wood (1-5), Logan Morrison capped Florida's three-run rally with a two-run single to center that made it 7-4.

Aramis Ramirez hit a two-out RBI double in the bottom half but Randy Choate came in and got Carlos Pena to bounce out to end the inning. Leo Nunez allowed Marlon Byrd's leadoff single in the ninth before retiring three straight for his 26th save.
