Giants Vs. Marlins Recap: Matt Cain Stellar In 3-2 San Francisco Win

Matt Cain did his part to shut down the Miami Marlins Sunday afternoon, and received just enough offensive help to salvage a 3-2 win on Sunday at Marlins Park.

Cain allowed one earned run in 6.2 innings on five hits and striking out four.

Melky Cabrera would be the difference for the Giants, going 4-for-4 including a first inning home run that gave the Giants an early lead.

Ricky Nolasco did his best to contain the rest of the Giants hitters, pitching seven solid innings, allowing three runs on five hits. The Marlins offense was only able to pick up six hits on the afternoon.

Miami will now welcome the first-place Washington Nationals to Marlins Park Monday afternoon for the beginning of a crucial series.
