How it happened:Luis Valbuena hit a two-out, solo home run in the top of the 9th to break the 3-3 tie. Carlos Marmol came on for the save and walked the first batter he faced and then yielded a hit before finishing out the save. Edwin Jackson was looking for his first win of the season, but yielded three earned runs in six innings. Nate Schierholtz had two hits, including a home run.
What it means: It's all about the closer right now with the Cubs, and while Marmol struggled, he got it done.
