Marlins Beat Cubs

Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Jesus Aguilar homered, and the Miami Marlins handed the Chicago Cubs their 11th straight loss with a 4-1 victory Sunday.


The game was tied at 1 before Chisholm connected against Alec Mills (5-5) in the sixth inning. Chisholm also singled and scored on Aguilar's 22nd homer in the seventh.


Chisholm's 12th homer landed in the second deck in right field.


Chicago matched its longest slide of the season. It also dropped 11 straight from June 25 to July 6.


Frank Schwindel homered for the Cubs, and Mills pitched 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

Miami outfielder Lewis Brinson went 2 for 4 for his sixth multihit game this month. The South Florida native has 19 hits in his last 13 games.


Justin Steele (2-1, 2.95 ERA) starts for the Cubs in their series opener at Cincinnati on Monday night.
