CHICAGO — Donnie Murphy homered to cap a four-run rally in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs connected four times Wednesday to beat the Miami Marlins 9-7. Murphy's two-run shot put the Cubs ahead 8-7. Starlin Castro, Dioner Navarro and Ryan Sweeney each added solo home runs for Chicago.

The Cubs avoided a sweep and prevented the Marlins from winning four straight for the first time this season.

The money will be split between the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and University of Michigan Athletics, and raises Ross’ total giving to his alma mater to more than $313 million, the Ann Arbor school said in a statement Wednesday. The Athletic Campus is expected to be named the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus.

“Stephen Ross’ vision has always been about the ability of facilities to transform the human experience,” school President Mary Sue Coleman said in the statement. “He understands the power of well-conceived spaces, and his generosity will benefit generations of Michigan students, faculty and coaches.”

According to lists from The Chronicle of Higher Education and The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Ross’ gift is the third biggest to a higher education facility in 2013.

Earlier this year, it was announced that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg would donate $350 million to Johns Hopkins University, and in July the A. Eugene Brockman Charitable Trust gave a $250 million donation to Centre College in Kentucky.

Ross’ $200 million donation is among the 30 single largest donations to a U.S. college or university, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s list.

In Michigan, specific projects will be announced in the coming months, the school said. In addition, scholarships will be available to Ross students.
