MIAMI – Donovan Walton hit a grand slam, Jakob Junis pitched six innings of one-run ball and the San Francisco Giants beat the Miami Marlins 5-1.

Curt Casali had two hits and scored twice for the Giants, who split the four-game series with Miami and finished 5-5 on their three-city road trip.

Junis limited the Marlins to two hits, walked two and struck out a season-high eight.

The right-hander has completed six innings in three of his last four starts.

The Giants stranded four runners through the first three innings before Walton’s slam put them ahead 4-0 in the fourth.

Walton drove the first pitch from Miami starter Braxton Garrett over the wall in right field for his first homer this season.
