The Miami Marlins welcomed back manager Ozzie Guillen from a five game suspension with a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday.
Guillen had been suspended by his team after he praised Cuba's Fidel Castro in a magazine interview, outraging prominent members of the large Cuban exile community in Miami.
With no major demonstrations or outbursts toward Guillen on Tuesday, the Marlins comfortably accounted for the Cubs (3-8) behind a strong pitching performance from Josh Johnson and the hot bat of Hanley Ramirez.
Johnson allowed just two runs over seven innings to keep the home team in the game, leaving with the score tied at 2-2, before Ramirez belted a three-run home run in the eighth to send Miami (5-6) to victory.
It was Ramirez's second homer in as many games and the Marlins' third win in four.
The team were 2-3 during Guillen's suspension.
Guillen apologized for the comments when he was in Philadelphia with the team then held a news conference in Miami to make a second apology specifically to the community.
