Recap: Miami vs. Chicago Cubs

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Mark Buehrle went eight innings, Hanley Ramirez and Donnie Murphy both hit a two-run homer and the Marlins downed the Cubs, 9-1, on Wednesday.

Buehrle (1-2) allowed one run on six hits, did not issue a walk, struck out five and added an RBI single for the Marlins, who have won a season-high three straight, including the first two of this three-game series.

"Everything was working for me tonight," said Buehrle. "It seems like a few times I got pitches up but I was able to get away with it. I felt really good out there."

Murphy finished with three RBI and Gaby Sanchez went 3-for-5 with an RBI double.

Matt Garza (1-1) allowed six runs on seven hits over five-plus innings in defeat. Ian Stewart knocked in the lone run for the Cubs, losers of four straight.

"This game is meant for human error," said Garza. "That's what makes it so fun and so frustrating at times."

Garza was in the midst of a career-high five-game winning streak which dated back to last season, but Murphy followed a John Buck walk with a blast to left in the third and Ramirez belted a two-out, two-run homer to left-center in the fifth. It marked Ramirez's fourth home run of the season and his third in as many games.

Sanchez scored Giancarlo Stanton and chased Garza with a double in the sixth. Later in the frame, Buehrle singled off of Lendy Castillo, scoring Sanchez and Jose Reyes added a sac fly, making it 7-0.

Jeff Baker began the seventh with a double, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on Stewart's groundout, but Murphy pushed another across with a sac fly in the bottom half. Reyes then led off the eighth with a triple and crossed the plate on Chris Coghlan's groundout to cap the scoring.

Game Notes

Garza's win streak dated back to August 30 of last season...Buehrle finished 1-for-4 at the plate. Reyes went 2-for-4.
