MIAMI, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- Marlon Byrd's two-run double keyed a four-run uprising in the fifth inning Saturday that carried the Chicago Cubs to a 5-3 win over Florida.

Aramis Ramirez added a run-scoring two-bagger and Starlin Castro forced in a run with a bases-loaded walk in the big inning, which allowed the Cubs to clinch their three-game series with Florida.

Casey Coleman (2-2) picked up the win, yielding three runs on five hits through six innings of work, surviving four walks and fanning five.

Carlos Marmol gained his 33rd save of the year with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Marlins starter Anibal Sanchez (12-10) absorbed the loss, walking five Cubs and allowing four runs on five hits.
