Marlins Score 6 in 9th, Beat Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs delivered a two-run double against closer Carlos Marmol, and the Florida Marlins scored six times in the ninth inning to rally for a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night 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 while pulling out a dramatic victory.

Matt Garza threw seven scoreless innings for Chicago and Sean Marshall worked the eighth, but Marmol (2-3) unraveled while blowing save opportunity for the seventh time in 26 chances.

He walked Mike Stanton, Mike Cameron and John Buck, throwing just one strike in the process, to load the bases, and Dobbs doubled into the right-field corner.
