Cubs fall at home to Florida 4-2

CHICAGO (AP) -- Nate Robertson pitched six solid innings, Ronny Paulino homered and the Florida Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 on Monday night after dropping five of six.

Paulino's two-run homer highlighted a three-run seventh in which Cody Ross stole home, giving the Marlins a 4-2 lead and sending the Cubs to their sixth loss in seven games.

Robertson (3-3) allowed two runs and seven hits after dropping his previous three starts.

Chicago's Ted Lilly (1-3) took a no-hitter into the sixth before things unraveled. Alfonso Soriano had three hits, including two run-scoring singles, and threw out Hanley Ramirez trying to score from second on Jorge Cantu's single to left in the eighth.
