The Cubs scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth, two coming on RBI doubles from Darwin Barney and Aramis Ramirez, to take a 3-1 lead.
Marmol came in to close out the game, but allowed a game-tying two-run double to pinch hitter Matt Downs, a go-ahead RBI single to Michael Bourn and a three-run homer to Hunter Pence.
Marmol retired just one batter while allowing six runs on five hits and a walk to take the loss, dropping to 1-2.
