Stanton's homer lifts Marlins
Fish win in 10 innings
Giancarlo Stanton homered off Santiago Casilla in the 10th inning, and the Miami Marlins beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Wednesday night after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth.
Stanton sent a 2-2 slider from Casilla (1-0) into the left-field bleachers for his third home run of the season. The long ball followed a wild ninth that saw struggling Marlins closer Heath Bell blow his fourth save in seven chances.
Carlos Zambrano pitched seven scoreless innings, and Steve Cishek (3-0) relieved Bell for the final six outs to give Miami its second straight win in San Francisco.
Giants starter Barry Zito tied a career-high with seven walks and lasted only 3 2-3 innings. Two defensive mishaps by the Giants accounted for Miami's first two runs.
