Garrett Jones hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to lift the Miami Marlins over the Chicago Cubs, 6-5, in the middle installment of a three-game series.

Rafael Furcal went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored for the Marlins, who bounced back from Monday's 5-4, 13-inning loss. Adeiny Hechavarria went 4- for-5 with a run scored.

Miami starter Anthony DeSclafani allowed four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. Sam Dyson (1-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief to pick up his first win in the majors.

Junior Lake hit a two-run homer for the Cubs, who fell to 4-5 on their current 10-game road trip. Justin Ruggiano, Jeff Samardzija and Luis Valbuena each knocked in a run.

Samardzija gave up three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits while striking out eight and walking three over six innings. Brian Schlitter (2-2) took the loss after giving up Jones' homer in the seventh.
