Giants' rookie contributions leads to Giants win over the Marlins 3-2

Sunday afternoon marked the debut of the highly anticipated prospects for the San Francisco Giants. Heliot Ramos was drafted in the 2017 MLB with the 19th overall pick and has flourished for Triple A affiliate Sacramento. Combine the eagerness to see how Ramos will do with the Giants; the fan base got a glimpse in seeing newly acquired prospect Luke Williams. Both rookies contributed in their own ways. Heliot Ramos went 2 for 3 with 1 run scored and Luke Williams went 1 for 2 with 1 RBI. The San Francisco Giants started pitcher Anthony DeSclafani. After having a successful 2021 for the ball club, Giants manager, Gabe Kapler believes that DeSclafani can be a great third man in the rotation. Besides giving up 2 earned runs (1 in the 2nd, and 1 in the 4th), DeSclafani recorded 5 strikeouts with an ERA of 4.91. The Miami Marlins did not have an answer for the Giants bullpen, as the Giants went to the bullpen early in the fourth inning. There was a plan by the coaching staff, which was to win the rubber match.The first was to utilize a bullpen that has not been used fully in the past two games. A few pitchers were fresh and ready to contribute. The second was to play error free defense. The San Francisco Giants did not have an error, and combined as a pitching staff only gave up 2 runs on 6 hits allowed. Relief pitchers Jarlin Garcia, Zack Littell, Tyler Rogers, and closer Dominic Leone pitched a combined 5.1 innings and did not allow any runs on 3 hits. If there was any key to the game, the pitching and defense was the major difference in Oracle Park today.The San Francisco Giants tied the game in the bottom of the second inning when Mauricio Dubon doubled to left field and scored rookie Heliot Ramos. On the very next at bat, rookie Luke Williams singled to right field scoring Mauricio Dubon. The Giants held the lead even when Miami scored their second run in top of the 4th inning when the Marlins Right Fielder, Garrett Cooper was struck by the ball scoring a player on third from a bases loaded situation. San Francisco Giants pitching owned the remaining innings. As a result, the one run lead is all that was needed to secure the San Francisco Giants second win of the year. As the week approaches, the San Francisco Giants will host a 3 game home stand with the San Diego Padres before heading on the road next weekend. Brandon Belt did not play today, but will be available to play 1st base or even the new DH allowance in the National League. The final score gave Giants a 2-1 record: Miami Marlins 2, San Francisco Giants 3. Winning Pitcher for Giants: Jarlin Garcia (1-0). Losing Pitcher for Marlins: Trevor Rogers (0-1). Save: Dominic Leone –SF – (1)
