Although Javier Vazquez delivered a quality seven-inning performance, Tim Lincecum went one or two better and allowed only two hits to the Marlins through seven scoreless innings as the Giants shut out the Fish in game two Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium.
Javy gave up the deciding run in the first inning when Jeff Keppinger hit a solo home run to left, but the Giants would add on two more against the starter.
In the fifth, Nate Shierholtz led off with a double and moved to third on a throwing error by Logan Morrison, then scored on a wild pitch by Javy.
The Giants added their third and final run in the sixth. Cody Ross singled to lead off the inning, and moved to second when Javy threw another wild pitch. Aubry Huff doubled to left to score Cody, and the Giants took a 3-0 lead.
The Marlins scraped together just three hits in the game, and the Giants evened the series.
