Giants 8, Marlins 2
Barry Zito's lone run allowed came in the first inning. (Alan Diaz/AP)
In danger of becoming the first Giants pitcher to start a season 0-9, Barry Zito instead turned in his best start of the year, allowing one run in 6 1/3 innings. He got plenty of support, especially from Bengie Molina and Aaron Rowand, who belted back-to-back homers in the fourth inning and combined for five RBIs.
