Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Chris Capuano took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Hanley Ramirez drove in three runs, and the Dodgers downed the Cubs, 5-0, on Sunday in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Jose Reyes broke up the veteran lefty's no-hitter with a one-out single in the seventh.

"Jose's got a quick bat. I left one over the middle and he smoked it," admitted Capuano.

For the series, Ramirez went 6-for-13 with five RBI in his return to Miami.

Wade LeBlanc (1-2) took the loss despite allowing just on run on six hits over seven innings. He struck out four and did not issue a walk to fell to 1-7 in nine career starts versus the Dodgers.

The only other hit for the Marlins was Nick Green's one-out, eighth-inning bloop single, which landed on the line in shallow right field.

Jamey Wright tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to seal the win.

Ramirez's two-run single off of Heath Bell scored Mark Ellis and Matt Kemp, who reached with a single and a double, respectively.
