About this Article

The combination of Carlos Marmol and save situations has tested the patience of Cubs fans like little else this season. Filling in because Kevin Gregg had been used four days in a row, the erstwhile Cubs closer allowed a three-run homer to Kirk Nieuwenhuis that capped a four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning and let the New York Mets salvage what had been shaping up as another sorry afternoon, startling Chicago 4-3 on Sunday.
