The Miami Marlins suffered a tough loss to the San Francisco Giants in an 11-inning battle on Wednesday night. Despite a valiant effort from their bullpen, the Marlins ultimately fell to the Giants 5-2.

The Giants drew first blood in the top of the 4th inning when Darin Ruf’s double brought home Wilmer Flores. However, the Marlins responded in the bottom of the 5th inning when Garret Cooper’s single tied up the game at one a piece.

Unfortunately for the Marlins, starting pitcher Trevor Rogers had to leave the game in the 4th inning due to tightness in his shoulder. This put added pressure on the Marlins bullpen, which stepped up in a big way by shutting out the Giants over the next six innings.

However, in the 11th inning, the Giants exploded for four runs, largely due to the efforts of Michael Conforto and Mike Yastrzemski, who each hit a home run. This proved to be too much for the Marlins to overcome, and they ultimately fell 5-2.

Despite the loss, the Marlins can take some solace in the fact that they won the series against the Giants. However, they were unable to achieve their first sweep of the year, which is undoubtedly a disappointment.

The Marlins will look to bounce back when they start a weekend series against the Cleveland Guardians on Friday. It will be a tough test for the Marlins, but they will be hoping to build on the positives from their series against the Giants and come away with a much-needed win.
