Marlins' Smith allows three runs in 6 1/3 vs. Giants

Caleb Smith surrendered three runs in 6 1/3 innings and did not earn a decision against the Giants on Wednesday. He served up a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen in the first inning, then didn't let another run across the plate until the sixth inning when Austin Jackson poked an RBI-single. Smith kept the walks in check tonight, not issuing a single free pass while fanning four in the quality start. He also went 2-for-2 at the plate. His record holds at 5-6 with a 3.75 ERA in 14 starts. He has 83 strikeouts and 30 walks in 72 innings.

Giants' Suarez allows two runs to Marlins in last start

Andrew Suarez let in two runs in five innings and did not factor into the decision against the Marlins on Wednesday. Both runs came in the fourth inning when the Marlins strung together a walk and three singles. Suarez allowed five total hits (all singles) plus two walks while fanning three in the contest. He was in line to win the game until the Giants' bullpen blew it. The rookie southpaw is 2-4 with a 4.92 ERA in 10 starts. He has a very good 50:11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 53 innings.
