MIAMI - MIAMI (AP) — Tom Koehler pitched seven innings to help the Miami Marlins to a 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
Giancarlo Stanton's RBI double and Marcell Ozuna's groundout in the first inning provided the scoring the day after a 14-inning game won by the Giants 8-7.
Fernando Rodney, filling in for the injured A.J. Ramos, pitched the ninth to record his 19th save in 21 opportunities.
Koehler (9-8) allowed two hits and three walks. He struck out six. Koehler is 3-0 with a 0.67 ERA over his last four starts.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy was back in the dugout after missing Monday's game with an irregular heartbeat following an overnight stay in a local hospital.
Brandon Crawford, Monday's hero for the Giants who went 7 for 8 including the go-ahead RBI in the top of the 14th, was hitless in four at-bats.
Stanton's RBI double came off a broken bat that bounced over the head of left fielder Angel Pagan and one-hopped the wall scoring Dee Gordon, who reached on a lead-off walk.
Ozuna followed Stanton with a groundout scoring Martin Prado.
The Giants had three at-bats with runners in scoring position without recording a hit after going 6 for 21 the previous game.
Giants starter Matt Moore (7-8) allowed two runs and three hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked five.
Giants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (9-8, 4.40 ERA) will start the final game of the series on Wednesday afternoon. Samardzija has struggled over his last four starts going 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA.
