In the top of the 1st, Luis Castillo led off the game with a single for his
Florida Marlins. Luckily for Dustin Hermanson and the Giants, he was caught
trying to steal second. But Juan Pierre, the next batter, belted a double to
deep left-center, and made it to third on a throwing error by Giants left
fielder Todd Linden. Mike Lowell grounded out to drive Pierre, giving the
Marlins an early 1-0 edge.
In the bottom of the 3rd, the last part of the Giants lineup took action.
Jeffrey Hammonds lead off with a solo blast to tie the game up, and Yorvit

starters, especially not recently, and since Brower is able to go about 2-3
innings, he really saves the rest of the relief staff from working much at
