Currently, search results on my site are coming up looking like the following:

This looks silly. Some numbers (like the 7) look like they are positioned below the last line of the result title. I want the number element to line up with the top of the search result so it looks better. I have tried styling the ::marker pseudo-element and can change the font size, style, and color, but haven't found anything to change its vertical position.

Any suggestions how to do this? 

ETA: I don't know why it's aligning this way in the first place. If I make a little test page, it aligns with the first line of the list item, which is what I would expect. Any thoughts on what could cause this misalignment?
