The Marlins and Giants had a close one-run game on Friday night with two of their young arms working. However, the Giants created more opportunities for themselves by advancing runners into scoring position, eventually cashing in the deciding run to win 1-0.
Sandy Alcántara: 7 IP, 9 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
Tyler Beede: 6.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Sandy Alcántara pitched well in Friday's game. With some run support, he would’ve won. The Giants were able to get nine hits off of Alcántara in his seven innings of work. He minimized the damage by pounding the strike zone, issuing zero walks.
The Marlins had a total of four hits, but not one of those hits came within the same inning. Starlin Castro, Harold Ramirez, Magneuris Sierra, and Curtis Granderson had one apiece.
Miami was held scoreless for the 22nd time this season, the most of any MLB team.
Garrett Cooper was injured in the first inning while he was making a sliding catch. He left the game with a left knee contusion. That was the biggest news to come out of Friday's game.
The Giants scored their one run during the bottom of the sixth inning. Stephen Vogt led off with a double to get things going. Buster Posey singled Vogt in two batters later. Alcántara got the final two outs without a problem. The quick run was the only mark on Alcántara's night.
Robert Dugger will take on Madison Bumgarner at 9:05 ET tonight.
