The Miami Marlins were in San Francisco on Wednesday, which means an obscenely late starting time. When Heath Bell blew a two-run lead in the ninth inning in spectacular fashion and the game ended up going into extra innings, which means any shot you might have had to watch the conclusion could have easily gone out the window. Luckily, Giancarlo Stanton has got your back.
The game was tied at two in the top of the tenth inning when Stanton hit his third home run of the season into the San Francisco night to give the Marlins a one-run lead. Steve Cishek pitched his second consecutive scoreless inning in the bottom of the tenth and the Marlins were able to get the win, even though it took a full inning more than they would have likely wanted. Carlos Zambrano got another hard luck no decision in this one. He went seven innings allowing just five hits, but the blown save in the bottom of the ninth ruined his chance at a win. He's still looking for his first positive decision of the year.
