MIAMI, May 23 (UPI) -- Mike Jacobs hit a two-run single off ex-Marlin Ryan Dempster with two outs in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday to give Florida a 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Dempster came on in relief to start the ninth, but gave up a single to pinch-hitter Wes Helms and walked Hanley Ramirez. Dan Uggla converted a sacrifice bunt to move both runners into scoring position, so Dempster intentionally walked Miguel Cabrera to set up a game-ending double play.

Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer for the Marlins. Scott Olsen allowed four runs on six hits with six strikeouts and a walk in five innings. Logan Kensing (1-1) earned the win after a perfect ninth with two strikeouts.

Michael Barrett and Matt Murton homered for the Cubs, who have lost five of their last six games.
