San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Pinch-hitter Marcell Ozuna delivered the
go-ahead single in the top of the eighth and the Miami Marlins edged the San
Francisco Giants, 2-1, in the opener of a four-game series at AT&T Park.
Sandy Rosario, who had already thrown 2 1/3 shutout innings, started the
inning for the Giants. However, after walking Justin Ruggiano, Jeremy Affeldt
(1-3) came in relief.
He hit Derek Dietrich with a pitch before Adeiny Hechavarria moved the runners
into scoring position with a sacrifice bunt. Ozuna's single to right brought
Ruggiano and Dietrich home to give the Marlins the lead.
Chad Qualls was perfect in the eighth and Steve Cishek notched his 11th save
with a scoreless ninth.
Miami starter Tom Koehler (1-5) carried a no-hitter into the sixth before
giving up a one-out single to Gregor Blanco. He allowed one run on three hits
and three walks over seven frames.
Giants starter Chad Gaudin allowed just two hits and two walks over 4 1/3
innings but left the game after getting hit in the right elbow by a line
drive by Dietrich. He was able to pick the ball up and throw him out, but
after throwing a few warmup pitches, he was taken out of the game.
