Marlins Avoid Sweep in San Francisco

The Marlins salvaged a win in the series finale in San Francisco against the Giants

The Miami Marlins avoided a sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants with their 5-4 win on Sunday.

The win was powered by 14 hits and a couple of long home runs along the way. It was an awakening for an offense that had been outscored 15-3 in the first two games combined. The win also allowed Miami to put a little more distance between itself and last place.

J.T. Realmuto had his biggest day of the season going 4-4 with his first home run of the year. The blast was the first of the year for Realmuto and ended up being the game-winning score. The catcher also doubled for the third time this season.

Giancarlo Stanton also hit a home run in the win which was his fourth of the year. Stanton has had a tough season overall, but a three-hit day in this one lifted his average up to .230.

Adam Conley started for Miami and ended up with a no-decision. The lefty allowed four runs on seven hits in his 5.2 innings of work. Conley struck out two and walked four in a disappointing start.

The win went to Kyle Barraclough since he was the pitcher of record when Realmuto hit his blast. Barraclough gave up a hit and struck out one in his scoreless inning of work. A.J. Ramos worked a scoreless ninth for his third save of the season.

Miami will open a four-game series in Los Angeles on Monday with Wei-Yin Chen set to take on the Dodgers.
