    Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano reacts after giving up a solo home run to Florida Marlins' Mike Stanton during the fourth inning.

    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.
