Mike Stanton hit two home runs, Javier Vazquez struck out 10 and the Florida Marlins routed the Chicago Cubs 13-3 Saturday.

Stanton got three hits and drove in four runs. He hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and added a three-run shot, his 20th, in the fifth off Carlos Zambrano.

Zambrano (6-5) was activated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day. He had a rocky 4 2-3 innings, giving up eight earned runs on seven hits and four walks.

Vazquez (6-8) went seven innings and pitched the Marlins to their sixth win in seven games.

Vazquez allowed only one hit through 5 1-3 innings. Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run homer in the sixth.

Now 1-2 against the Cubs this season, Vazquez gave up four hits and walked none.
