CHICAGO (AP) - Pedro Strop hit Giancarlo Stanton with a pitch in the eighth inning then threw a wild pitch that allowed the Marlins slugger to score the go-ahead run, and the Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 Sunday.

Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez left the game because of a left hip injury.

Trailing 3-2 after Luis Valbuena walked with the bases loaded in the seventh, the Marlins scored twice off Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (0-3) in the eighth. Garrett Jones' sacrifice fly to left tied it. Then Stanton scored on a wild pitch to give Miami its first lead of the day.

Steve Cishek pitched a scoreless ninth for his 14th save in 15 tries, helping Miami avoid the sweep and end Chicago's five-game winning streak. The Cubs were deprived of the chance for their first six-game run since winning seven straight from July 31-Aug. 6, 2011.

Mike Dunn (5-3) got two outs for the win.
