Jake and the boys facing the Marlins today and I really hope he gets the needed support he deserves. The Giants were amazing blowing out the cobwebs and getting the win.

**Top of 2nd – Miami with a single to right, , Finally some defense for Jake turning 2 to close the inning.
*Top of 3rd – Giants 2 and Marlins 1, Jake’s slider is looking good and I can see his confidence with the help he is getting behind him today.

**Bottom of 4th – Bour with a single and Pence on 2nd with a double, Blanco with a free pass, Jake’s single brings home Pence and Belt for a 4 to 1 Giants lead.
**Top of 5th – Jake back, looking good, after helping his offense with his bat in the last inning.
**Bottom of 5th – Duffy with a single to right,
**Top of 6th – Marlins running on first, (Jake has thrown 70 pitches) A stand up double cuts the lead 4 to 2 still in favor of the Giants.
**Bottom of 7th – Jake is done for the night. The Giants add 2 more in the 7th.
The Giants add 1 more in the 8th for a 7 to 2 Giants win.
Jake had an amazing night going 7 innings, 7 hits with 2 runs earned. 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts. This was great for his ERA dropping it to 6.86.
Jake should pitch again roughly on Friday during the Mets series.
