MIAMI, May 22 (UPI) -- Rookie Ricky Nolasco pitched seven innings, homered and had two RBI Monday as the Florida Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs, 9-1.

The win ended a seven-game Marlins losing streak.

Nolasco (3-1), making the second start of his big-league career, allowed one run on four hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts.

Nolasco's homer leading off the fourth inning was the first hit of his career and first home run by a Marlins pitcher since Dontrelle Willis homered on Sept. 12, 2005.

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-3 with three runs scored and two RBI. Chris Aguila doubled in two runs, and Dan Uggla was 2-for-4 and drove in a run for Florida.

Aramis Ramirez homered for the Cubs, who have lost four of their last five games. Ramirez, Jacque Jones and former Marlin Juan Pierre each had two hits.
