MIAMI – Alex Wood pitched five innings in his season debut and four relievers completed a three-hitter as the San Francisco Giants used an unearned run to beat the Miami Marlins 1-0 and avert a series sweep.
Wood, returning from a back problem that sidelined him midway through spring training, allowed three hits and walked none.
The left-hander signed a $3 million, one-year contract after pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2020.
Tyler Rogers pitched a perfect ninth for his first save to complete the Giants’ third shutout in their past seven games.
For Miami, starting pitcher Pablo Lopez finished with a career-high nine strikeouts. He tossed six innings, allowing only an unearned run.
