MIAMI (AP) - Garrett Jones hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning Tuesday night, and the Miami Marlins rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 6-5.

Adeiny Hechavarria started the Marlins' seventh with a bunt single for his fourth hit. Rafael Furcal had a two-out, two-run single in the fourth for his first RBIs since 2012.

Hard-luck Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs, two earned, in six innings but was again denied a victory. The Cubs are 4-11 when he starts even though his ERA is 2.78.

Luis Valbuena's RBI double in the seventh gave Chicago a 4-3 lead and left Samardzija in line for only his third win. But Miami rallied against Brian Schlitter (2-2).
