Happ, Steele lead Cubs past Marlins 4-1 to end 3-game slide


Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — Ian Happ lined a deep two-run homer, Justin Steele tossed seven solid innings and the Chicago Cubs topped the Miami Marlins 4-1 on Friday. Steele allowed one run on six hits and walked none to lower his ERA to an NL-leading 1.45. The left-hander has permitted two or fewer earned runs in 14 straight starts. Chicago’s Matt Mervis drove in an insurance run in the eighth with his first hit in his major-league debut. Luis Arráez had three hits and Yuli Gurriel’s sacrifice fly drove in the only run for the Marlins. Edward Cabrera yielded three runs on five hits in five innings while striking out eight.
