Marlins earn rare road win, 7-5 at San Francisco
Question of the Day
Wins like Friday night will help erase those questions.
“I think we’re still trying to figure it out,” Redmond said. “If I had an answer to why we’re so much better at home to on the road, we’d fix it, right? But these guys keep battling. They keep fighting. You saw that tonight. We don’t quit. We keep grinding. We might make a few mistakes, but we keep going.”
The Marlins made plenty of mistakes. They also made some big plays, too.
Derek Dietrich and Christian Yelich homered, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia snapped an 0-for-26 skid by tying his career high with four singles to stop Miami’s slide. The Marlins entered the game losers of six of their past seven games and a majors-worst 4-16 record away from home.
They also are a league-best 17-5 at home.
“We’ve seen those games go the other way sometimes, especially on the road right now. It was huge for us to be able to stick in there and get that one,” McGehee said.
Santiago Casilla (1-1) got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth, but couldn’t escape trouble in the ninth. The right-hander allowed two baserunners before McGehee’s tiebreaking grounder to right field.
“It just had eyes and got through the infield,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “That’s the way the game goes.”
Garrett Jones added an RBI single off lefty Javier Lopez and made a leaping catch in the netting of the photographers’ pit in foul territory in the bottom of the ninth. Mike Dunn (4-3) pitched a scoreless eighth, and Steve Cishek converted his eighth save for Miami.
Neither starter pitched well but did just enough to give his team a chance in the final innings.
Henderson Alvarez allowed five runs - four earned - and 10 hits in six innings for the Marlins. He struck out four and walked none.
Giants right-hander Yusmeiro Petit, filling in while Tim Hudson rested his nagging hip, gave up five runs - four earned - on seven hits in five innings. He struck out five and walked none.
“I lost a little bit of my command in the first inning. I tried to stay close in the game,” Petit said.
