Meadows Gem Beats Giants
Brian Meadows pitched another great game, improving his record to 3-0, in a 7-2 win over the San Fransisco Giants. This was the Marlins first win over the Giants since the 1997 Divisional Series. Meadows was backed up by Mark Kotsay who went 3-3 with 2 RBIs and Derrek Lee’s 4 RBIs, including his second home run of the season. The Marlins scored 2 in the first and 2 in the sixth before allowing a Giant run. The Giants had a mini-rally in the seventh and eighth as Meadows began to tire, but Vic Darensbourg and Brian Edmondson shut the door. Edmondson earned his first Major League save. Box Score.
