The Miami Marlins ended their 11 game West Coast road trip with a 4-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday afternoon.

Turner struggles before settling in

In his young career, Jacob Turner has yet to prove that he could pitch consistently in every start. Turner has yet to win a game on the road in his major league career, and that didn't happen against the Giants on Sunday.

Buster Posey, Tyler Colvin, and Brandon Hicks all drove in runs in a three run first inning that saw Turner have difficulty finding the strike zone.

Although he gave up a home run to Pablo Sandoval in the bottom of the fifth, Turner retired 15 of the last 16 Giants he faced. In his six innings, he struck out seven while walking just one.

Offense can't add late

After putting together an offensive rally against Tim Lincecum on Saturday night, the Marlins couldn't score against Ryan Vogelsong. Vogelsong went seven innings and struck out six Marlins.

Christian Yelich's RBI groundout against Jeremy Affeldt in the top of the eighth got Miami on the board, and although Derek Dietrich and Casey McGehee both followed that with hits, Garrett Jones struck out after fouling a ball off deep down the right field line.

Miami's offense will look to regroup heading home to Marlins Park.

Bullpen solid

Carter Capps and Brad Hand each pitched a scoreless inning in relief of Turner.

Miami has an off day Monday before beginning a three game series with the Phillies on Tuesday. The Marlins went 4-7 on the trip.
