DeJesus has RBI single in 7th, lifts Cubs to win

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - David DeJesus hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning to help lift the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 win over the struggling Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Travis Wood (2-1) pitched six innings allowing two runs and struck out five for Chicago, which has won 4 of 5.

Three relievers held the lead to get to Kevin Gregg, who pitched a perfect ninth for his third save.

Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit his first home run of the season, an estimated 472-foot drive over the left-field scoreboard. Miguel Olivo also homered for Miami, which dropped to 5-19, the worst record in baseball.
