CHICAGO -- The Seattle Mariners don't mind winning like this, no matter how stressful it is.
"The great thing about it is it's someone different every night," Bloomquist said.
His turn came after Jose Vidro knocked a double off the ivy in left field with two out and Will Ohman (0-4) intentionally walked Yuniesky Betancourt. Bloomquist grounded a single to right, and Vidro ran through a stop sign at third as Jacque Jones unleashed a two-hop throw.
Barrett, who was trying to block home, deflected the ball and Vidro scored the go-ahead run after initially missing the plate.
Vidro said he "didn't even come close" to touching the plate initially, but got it after the ball rolled away. And there was no way he was about to stop at third.
"In my mind, I thought if I have a chance I've got to score," Vidro said. "I tried to get a big lead so I could score on anything."
Barrett wasn't sure if Jones' throw arrived before Vidro.
"I know that when he came running in, it was going to be a bang-bang play," he said. "Right before the ball came in, I felt like the only way we were going to get him out was to sacrifice my body and get everything on the plate."
Ryan Theriot and Felix Pie singled with one out, putting runners on first and second. Mike Fontenot then lined out softly to second, bringing up Alfonso Soriano -- the centerpiece of the Cubs' $300 million makeover in the offseason.
He walked, loading the bases for pinch-hitter Koyie Hill, who grounded to first.
Lee led off the eighth with a double off reliever Sean Green and Barrett tied it with a single off the glove of diving second baseman Jose Lopez. Mark DeRosa followed with a double to right-center that put runners on second and third and chased Green.
Brandon Morrow came in and intentionally walked Cliff Floyd to load the bases, before Theriot forced a runner at the plate for the first out. George Sherrill then caught Pie looking at a 3-2 pitch on the inside edge and struck out Mike Fontenot on four pitches to end the threat.
Although they've played better since that meltdown against Atlanta a week-and-a-half ago, the Cubs have not put together a long winning streak. They're 6-4 since Carlos Zambrano left Barrett with a black eye and a cut on the lip that required six stitches and manager Lou Piniella kicked dirt on an umpire the following day.
They're showing the fight management envisioned -- the kind that brings teams back in games like this. But they're not where they want to be.
"This is a game we should've won," Lee said. "We need to do a better job of that in these games, create the big streaks. We're not worried about getting people to believe in us."
Mariners starter Jarrod Washburn allowed two runs -- both in the first -- and five hits, struck out four and walked five in six innings.
Jose Guillen tied it at 2 with a solo homer in the third, and Washburn helped himself with two out in the fourth, when he drove in Kenji Johjima with a single -- his ninth hit in 32 career at-bats -- to make it 3-2.
Rich Hill allowed three runs and eight hits in 6 2/3 innings for the Cubs. He struck out four and walked one.
Chicago used five relievers and the Mariners six.
DeRosa had three hits for Chicago, and Lee added two after going 4-for-31 in his previous eight games.
Johjima had three hits for Seattle, which looked like it was ready to be blown out early on.
