Giants beat Marlins 3-1 to win series

CBS News Miami Sports Live

Rookie Keaton Winn threw six solid innings of one-run ball and the San Francisco Giants beat the Marlins 3-1 Wednesday afternoon to win their first series in Miami since 2016.

Winn (1-3) scattered four hits and struck out four. Thairo Estrada had two hits and scored the go-ahead run in the seventh, when he raced home on a double-play grounder hit by Nick Ahmed against reliever Declan Cronin (0-2).

Jorge Soler and Jung Hoo Loo had two hits and scored one run each for the Giants. Matt Chapman hit an RBI double in the eighth.

The Marlins dropped to an NL worst 4-15.

Miami's Bryan De La Cruz hit a solo homer to tie at 1-all in the sixth after Winn absorbed a comebacker to his left foot hit by Luis Arraez in the sixth. The ball caromed to Estrada at second base, who threw Arraez out.

Winn took several warm-up pitches and remained in the game. He then threw a 2-1 sinker that De La Cruz drove over the wall in right for his third homer.

Erik Miller relieved Winn and threw a perfect seventh and Tyler Rogers got the three outs in the eighth. Camilo Doval closed for his third save.

Estrada gave San Francisco an early lead with his RBI double off Miami starter Trevor Rogers in the second. Rogers gave up one run and five hits and struck out six over 5 2/3 innings.

It was the only game of Miami's two-series homestand played with the roof closed. Through the Marlins' first two homestands this season, the roof at loanDepot Park has been open 10 of 13 games, already surpassing last season's total of five.

The Marlins optioned RHP George Soriano to Triple-A Jacksonville and recalled Cronin from the same minor league club.


Giants: RHP Alex Cobb (left hip surgery) threw a bullpen session Tuesday in Arizona. Manager Bob Melvin said he will be further evaluated Thursday.

Marlins: RHP JT Chargois (neck spasms) is scheduled to throw a 35-pitch batting practice session Friday at the club's spring training complex in Jupiter, Florida.


Giants: RHP Logan Webb (1-1, 3.80) will start the opener of a four-game home series against Arizona on Thursday.

Marlins: Have not announced a starter for the opener of a four-game series at the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.
