Cubs crumbling in Florida
Marlins 7, Cubs 4
Derrek Lee rounds third after his solo home run in the third inning. (Lynne Sladky/AP)
 Lee's homer
 Jones' two-run single
Jacque Jones drove in three runs, and Derrek Lee belted his 21st homer, but the Cubs could not catch the Marlins and fell in Florida for the second straight night. However, with a Brewers loss, the Cubs' magic number has diminished to three, and they remain two games ahead in the NL Central.
