Last updated on Tuesday, May 11, 2010

(CHICAGO, IL) - Ronny Paulino hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning as the Florida Marlins got past the Chicago Cubs 4-2 at Wrigley Field.

Alfonso Soriano put the Cubs on the scoreboard first with an RBI single off Florida starter Nate Robertson in the second inning.

Chris Coghlan tied the game with an RBI double in the sixth before Soriano put Chicago back on top with another RBI single off Robertson.

Paulino then gave the Marlins the lead with his blast off Cubs starter Ted Lilly and Cody Ross gave Florida an insurance run when he stole home on the back end of a double-steal.

The Cubs have lost their last three games.
