CHICAGO — Jorge Cantu hit a three-run double in the 10th inning after Florida tied it on a throwing error by Carlos Marmol in the eighth, and the Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs, 8-2, Thursday night.

Alfredo Amezaga doubled and scored on Ryan Theriot's fielding error for the go-ahead run in the 10th and Cantu homered and drove in four runs for the Marlins. Florida tied it in the eighth when Marmol threw away Cameron Maybin's sacrifice attempt.

Theriot committed two of the Cubs' three errors as Chicago lost for the seventh time in nine games.

Amezaga led off the 10th with a drive off Aaron Heilman that popped out of Reed Johnson's glove for a double. Wes Helms walked before Amezaga scored when Theriot couldn't come up with Derrek Lee's throw to second.
