SAN FRANCISCO – Since July 29, 2010, the Giants are 146-99 at AT&T Park. None of those wins have come against the Miami Marlins.
The Marlins extended their winning streak to nine with a come-from-behind 6-3 win Friday night. The last Giants home win over the Marlins was July 28, 2010.
Logan Morrison homered and tripled. Ed Lucas and Marcell Ozuna also had two hits apiece and combined to score three runs.
Eleven National League hitters began play Wednesday hitting .350 or better with two out and runners in scoring position. Ozuna is now among that group. Both of his hits, including the go-ahead, RBI-single in the eighth, came in those situations.
He is now 7 for 20 (.350) with two doubles, a triple and nine RBIs with two outs and runners in scoring position.
The Marlins batted around in what proved to be a decisive eighth inning. Ozuna, pinch hitter Greg Dobbs and Adeiny Hechavarria all reached on consecutive two-out singles. Shortstop Joaquin Arias' throwing error also contributed to the three-run, four-hit inning, which was not without controversy.
With one out and one on, a Jake Dunning pitch appeared to hit Giancarlo Stanton on the hand. Giants' manager Bruce Bochy argued the ball hit the bat knob first, and replays showed he had a good case.
Giants starter Tim Lincecum pitched seven innings, striking out eight and giving up four hits and three runs.
