MIAMI -- Melky Cabrera had four hits, including a home run, in four at-bats, Matt Cain pitched into the seventh inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Sunday.

Buster Posey, Angel Pagan, and Cabrera drove in the runs for the Giants, who wrapped a seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record.

Cain (5-2) allowed two runs (one earned) and five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked three in his first win against the Marlins since July 27, 2010, a span of five starts.

Santiago Casilla recorded his 12th save in 13 chances by pitching the final 1 1/3 innings.

Cabrera also scored all three runs for the Giants and stole two bases. He added to his National League-leading hit total, which now stands at 73, while registering his 24th multi-hit game, which also leads the league. It was the ninth time in his career and third this season he has had four hits in a game.

Cabrera got it started for San Francisco with a solo home run, his fourth, to right field in the first inning off Ricky Nolasco (5-3). In his next at-bat, Cabrera singled to lead off the fourth and scored on a sacrifice fly by Pagan to give the Giants a 2-0 lead.

The Marlins cut the deficit in half after Giancarlo Stanton walked to begin the fifth and Logan Morrison laid down a bunt to the left side of the infield with a shift to the right. Chris Coghlan's two-out single to right scored Stanton.

Posey's double off the center-field wall scored Cabrera in the sixth, stretching the Giants lead to 3-1.

Miami had an opportunity to score in the bottom of the sixth with runners on second and third, but second baseman Ryan Theriot scooped up a grounder by Logan Morrison, jumped and threw out Morrison at first for the third out to preserve the lead.

However, Jose Reyes would come through for the Marlins in the seventh with a two-out line drive single to right that scored Bryan Petersen, pulling Miami within 3-2. Cain was then lifted in favor of Sergio Romo, who struck out Omar Infante to end the inning.

Nolasco allowed three runs, five hits, and two walks in seven innings. He struck out two.

NOTES: Cabrera is hitting .426 (46 for 108) in May and is just six hits away from tying Randy Winn's San Francisco Giants record for hits in a month. ... Nolasco lost to the Giants for the first time in his last five starts and is now 5-3 with a 1.83 ERA in eight starts against the club. ... Coghlan's two-hit performance gave him his first multi-hit game since April 13 vs. Houston. ... Pagan and Coghlan each made highlight-reel diving plays in the outfield. ... Miami's 2008 first-round draft pick, C Kyle Skipworth, hit for the cycle and drove in six runs Saturday for Double-A Jacksonville.
