Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth in a one-run game to earn a save Thursday against the Marlins.

Marmol walked Donovan Solano and gave up a single to Austin Kearns to start the ninth, but he rebounded to get Juan Pierre to ground out and Placido Polanco to fly out before he struck out Giancarlo Stanton to end it. Consider Marmol to be the favorite for saves in Chicago once again. Just don't expect anything to come easy.
