SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez drove in a pair of runs without a hit to back Anibal Sanchez's first win in four starts, and the Miami Marlins rebounded from a rough stretch for a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday and a three-game sweep. Giancarlo Stanton doubled in the seventh after he homered in three of his previous four games. Stanton has nine doubles and four home runs in 10 career games in the Giants' waterfront ballpark. A 3,000-mile trek cross-country and a change of scenery seems to have done the trick for the rebounding Marlins, who had lost eight of nine and were booed in their new home stadium before starting this series -- the club's second three-game sweep at AT&T Park in as many visits.

A look at what Giants are on pace for in 2012

Freaky Friday: featuring Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum. So far, the Giants have played in 23 games (not including tonight’s game against the Marlins) and have their fare share of hot and cold starts. In the month of April, the Giants had a rough start but found their groove to earn a 12-10 record. The brightest spot of the giants so far is their offense averaging a hair under four...

Carlos Zambrano feels like a new man for not throwing a chair at Heath Bell

The Marlins took a 2-0 lead into the 9th inning on Wednesday night before closer Heath Bell allowed the Giants to tie the game up and send it into extra innings. That is unfortunate for the Marlins starter, who was in line for the win after throwing seven dominant innings. That starter was Carlos Zambrano. Uh oh. No uh oh? Apparently Zambrano truly has changed. The Marlins held on...

Giants' Pablo Sandoval out 4-6 weeks

Pablo Sandoval has a broken bone in his left hand that will require surgery, and the San Francisco slugger is expected to miss four to six weeks. The free-swinging switch-hitter broke his right hamate bone in late April last year and had surgery, then it happened again to the other hand in recent days and he aggravated it swinging left-handed in Wednesday's 3-2, 10-inning loss...

Bochy fears Sandoval has a serious hand injury

It wasn't a happy ending for San Francisco Giants fans. First, their team rallied to tie the Miami Marlins 2-2 in the ninth inning Wednesday, only to lose in the 10th on Giancarlo Stanton's homer off Santiago Casilla. Then came the news about Pablo Sandoval, delivered by manager Bruce Bochy, who strongly hinted Sandoval has a pretty bad left hand injury. "There...

Pablo Sandoval Headed for the Disabled List

Led by Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, the San Francisco Giants offense has actually been decent this year. Their 95 wRC+ ranks them 8th in the National League, thanks in large part to the contributions of Buster Posey (.342/.400/.575) and Pablo Sandoval (.316/.375/.537). Melky Cabrera has been good, and the team has gotten production from the Brandon Belt/Brett Pill platoon when...

Report: Giants' Sandoval has fractured hamate bone

POSTGAME RECAP: Giants Play One Inning, Lose

The Marlins can’t hit. The Giants can’t hit. Fortunately, getting a hit isn’t the only way to reach base. Someone alert Sir Bam Bam. Eleven Marlins reached base without getting a hit. Ten walks, one reached on an error. See, it’s easy! Zito didn’t have a good game. This is a disgusting understatement. But since it is his first hiccup of the year, I’ll leave the jokes...

Scoring Hits the Breaks as Injuries Accelerate

The San Francisco Giants have apparently found a cure for run scoring fever. Apparently it involves getting a lot of rest during every half inning of every game, and making more frequent visits to the medical clinic.The numbers, as they often do, speak volumes: the first 16 games of the season saw the Giants scoring 4.44 runs per game, a full run per game higher than their disastrous...

Stanton's HR in 10th lifts Marlins past Giants 3-2

Ozzie Guillen has been giving Heath Bell every opportunity to remain the Miami Marlins' closer. He's running out of chances. The big, burly right-hander blew his fourth save of the season before Giancarlo Stanton homered in the 10th inning, lifting the Marlins to a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Wednesday night. Bell never recorded an out as San Francisco...
