MLB: Chicago Cubs 7, Arizona 5

May 1, 2010 at 5:20 PM

CHICAGO, May 1 (UPI) -- Derrek Lee's two-run single in the eighth inning broke a tie Saturday and boosted the Chicago Cubs to a 7-5 victory over Arizona.

Lee, batting with the bases loaded and one out, lined a shot off Juan Gutierrez (0-3) past diving third baseman Mark Reynolds to drive in pinch-runner Tyler Colvin and Ryan Theriot and break a 5-5 tie.

Lee ended the game 2-for-5 with a run scored while Kosuke Fukudome doubled twice, walked and drove in a run for Chicago.

Sean Marshall (1-1) earned the win with two scoreless innings of relief, while Carlos Marmol got his fourth save despite a shaky ninth, during which he loaded the bases with two walks and a hit.

Reynolds belted two homers -- his eighth and ninth of the season -- for the Diamondbacks, who dropped their second straight in a three-game series at Wrigley Field.
