After zero offense in the first six innings of tonight's contest, the Giants got on the board in the seventh as Brandon Belt doubled for the first extra base hit of the game for either team and was then driven in by Joaquin Arias, who tripled to make the score 1-0 Giants.
Miami then responded in the top of the eight, as Justin Ruggiano and Derek Dietrich got on, Adeiny Hechavarria moved them over with a sac bunt, and then Marcell Ozuna—a rookie—had a huge double to give the Marlins the 2-1 lead, which ended up being the play of the game.
Chad Gaudin and Koehler made quick work of the opposition in the first four innings, and while Gaudin was pitching well in the top of the fifth, he was hit in the right arm by a Dietrich screamer and he had to come out.
Koehler kept a no-hit bid alive for five inning, but it was spoiled by Gregor Blanco in the bottom of the sixth.
