Ricky Nolasco continued his career success in San Francisco and Heath Bell notched the save in a 2-1 Miami Marlins win on Tuesday over the San Francisco Giants.   The Marlins came into the game having dropped eight of their last nine games.   The win snapped a two game losing streak for Miami and improved their record to 9-14 on the season.

Nolasco who has excelled in his career at AT&T Park did so again with seven and a third innings of one run ball.    The right-hander took a perfect game into the bottom of the third when Matt Cain broke it up with a fly ball over Emilio Bonifacio’s head in center field.     The one run came off the bat of Pablo Sandoval on a solo home run in the sixth inning.    Nolasco ran into trouble in the eighth loading the bases with one out before being lifted in favor of Edward Mujica who would face Buster Posey.   The Marlins’ setup man did his job inducing an inning ending double play to earn a hold.   After the game, Bell who worked a scoreless ninth to earn his third save tweeted “Mujica saved that game tonight.”

Giancarlo Stanton continued his recent hot swing blasting his second home run of the year, and also his second in three games.   The home run was a line drive down the left field line.   Hanley Ramirez also knocked in a run with a single in the fourth with the infield playing in.     Stolen bases were a theme in this game as the Marlins’ top trio of players each swiped a bag.   Jose Reyes and Ramirez picked up their fifth steals, while Bonifacio talled his tenth.

The Marlins will try to win two in a row on Wednesday as Carlos Zambrano takes on Barry Zito.
