MIAMI -- Pablo Sandoval credited his recent weight loss for his ability to beat out an infield hit that proved to be a turning point in the game. Sandovals pivotal RBI single started a four-run fourth inning to help lift the San Francisco Giants to a 6-4 win over the Marlins on Saturday night a day after they outslugged Miami 14-10. "Great hustle, it probably won the game for us," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "It kept the rally going." It would have been the final out of the inning as Logan Morrison raced to the bag, but Sandoval made a head-first slide to beat the Miami first baseman and allow Brandon Belt to score. "It worked, hustle," Sandoval said. "Thats a good rally for us. You have to play like that no matter what situation. Thats the guy that I am, I play hard every day no matter what the situation is." Sandoval has lost 22 pounds in the past six weeks after hiring his older brother, Luis, to be his full-time chef. And when asked if he could have beaten out the play at first prior to his recent transformation, Sandoval responded with an emphatic, "No." Following Sandovals hustle play, Miami pitcher Henderson Alvarez (2-2) then balked home a run and Gregor Blanco tripled, driving in Sandoval and Roger Kieschnick for a 4-0 lead. Center fielder Jake Marisnick made a dive for the ball, but could not get a glove on it. "Jake got aggressive trying to catch that fly ball in centre and didnt catch it and it cost us a couple runs," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. The Marlins cut the deficit to 4-2 on a two-run home run by Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth off of Matt Cain (8-8), who allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings. On the pitch prior to Stantons home run, Cain threw a ball that brushed back Stanton, causing him to fall to the ground. After the game Stanton said the pitch hit him on the wrist, but had no way to prove it to home plate umpire David Rackley. Stanton got up and responded with his 14th home run of the season, an estimated 446-foot blast to left-centre field. "Ill take it instead of a hit-by-pitch," Stanton said. Cain wasnt happy with allowing the homer and struck out the next three batters. "I was definitely heated," Cain said. Sandoval drew a bases-loaded walk in the eighth and Andres Torres hit an RBI single to push the Giants lead to 6-2. "Its always important to get insurance runs," Bochy said. "It gives you a bigger margin of error." Morrison hit a two-run double in the bottom of the eighth to pull the Marlins to 6-4. Sergio Romo retired the Marlins in order in the ninth to record his 30th save in 34 chances. "He made some great pitches hitting his spots tonight," Bochy said. "Hes done a very well in that closing role." Alvarez allowed four runs, four hits and four walks while striking out four in seven innings. NOTES: Giants 2B Marco Scutaro left the game in the sixth with a tight lower back. ... Belt went 0 for 2, snapping his career-long hitting streak at 11 games. ... Marlins 3B Placido Polanco was given the day off after getting hit in the head by a pitch during Fridays game. "It looks like hes going to be OK," Redmond said. "Today is a day he just kind of takes it easy. Maybe hell feel better (Sunday). He definitely dodged one there and Im glad hes OK." ... Former Giants pitcher Guillermo Mota received his World Series ring before the game. "Its unbelievable," Mota said. "I just get excited when I see that ring. Its better than the last one." Mota, 40, has aspirations of returning to the Giants next season and believes he has two years left. ... Giants CF Angel Pagan (hamstring) went 0 for 1 for the rookie-level Giants on Friday in his first rehab assignment. "It went fine," Bochy said. "Hes going to go five innings (Saturday), he had a couple of at-bats and had a lot of plays out in the outfield and is moving around well. First game went well for him." ...

Ultra Boost 2018 Discount . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Jim Harbaughs ways seem to be working with his target audience.Michigans coach has starred in a rap video, traveled the country for youth camps, taken his team to Florida for spring break, traded barbs on Twitter and even had sleepovers with recruits.Hes done all of that -- and much more -- entering his second season with the Wolverines.If generating buzz to attract recruits to help revive a storied program is Harbaughs aim, hes hitting the mark.Harbaugh is much more popular than Alabama coach Nick Saban among millennial males, according to a New York-based company that measures the awareness and appeal of personalities. And, at least some data shows Harbaugh is on the verge of having his celebrity transcend the sports world with those same young men between the ages of 18 and 34.Harbaugh is making a significantly stronger impact than Saban among younger males and that seems to be his objective, Henry Schafer, executive vice president of The Q Scores Company, said in a telephone interview Friday. And, Harbaugh is on the cusp of being an iconic figure among the general population in the same demographic.Nearly three-fourths of male sports fans between 18 and 34 are aware of Harbaugh. Harbaughs Q score is 25 among that group, meaning one out of four millennial males said he was a favorite of theirs in a survey done earlier this year. Saban is someone 68 percent of millennial males surveyed are familiar with and his Q score is 21 among them.The Q Scores Company conducted its latest survey in February, just after Harbaugh slept at the houses of recruits and prior to him becoming the first college football coach -- and perhaps the last -- to take his team way off campus for spring drills in Florida. In June, the envelope-pushing coach barnstormed around the country for satellite camps that the NCAA banned after the SEC and ACC pushed for a proposal to do so only to have that decision rescinded.I dont know about `Q Ratings, but I do know that it was priceless to coach and teach 15 to 20,000 youngsters at those camps, Harbaugh told The Associated Press, just before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent Chicago Cubs game. Obviously, we didnt do all those camps just for recruiting because all of those youngsters arent coming to Michigan. But they were all introduced to and learned more about the great game of football.Michigan was good, not great, in Harbaughs first season leading his alma mater.The Wolverines were 10-3, opening with a setback to Utah and losing later to Ohio State and Michigan State.dddddddddddd.They are positioned for a successful start to this season, hosting the first five games, all of which they will likely be favored to win. They appear to have tougher tests in the back half of the schedule, including road games against the Buckeyes and Spartans, rivals who have had their way with the maize and blue in recent years.If Harbaugh and the Wolverines dont win more games this season and lose to both rivals again, his efforts to create buzz will fall flat. And, hell still have five fewer national championships than Saban.Hype is just hype. It doesnt mean anything, Michigan receiver Jehu Chesson said. Youve got to beat your rivals, and we dont shy away from that.Between spring drills and training camp, Harbaugh appeared in a rap video with Bailey, whose song Whos Got It Better Than Us? plays off a catch phrase of Harbaughs father, Jack. The senior Harbaugh asked his kids, including Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh, that question when they were growing up and Nobody! was the expected response.Jack Harbaugh, who recently moved into a house 500 feet, from his sons house in Ann Arbor, said there is no disconnect between the perception and reality of Jim Harbaugh.Jim is who is he and he doesnt ever worry about the backlash, said Jack Harbaugh. He took his shirt off at a camp, and people are still talking about it a year later. They asked him to be in a rap video and he had some fun with it. Some liked it. Others didnt, and that doesnt bother him.His current players and the ones he is recruiting, those in the aforementioned millennial group, seem to be fans of Harbaughs unique style.Harbaughs boss, Warde Manuel, doesnt fit in the same demographic. However, Manuel also admires Harbaughs approach and is thankful his first season in charge of the athletic department will be Harbaughs second season on the sideline at the Big House.Having him back has meant a lot to the university, athletic department and Michigan football in ways that can be measured: wins, ticket sales and donations, Manuel said. And in many intangible ways, he has made people feel good around here and from afar about him and Michigan.---Follow AP College Football coverage at http://collegefootball.ap.org/ and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Larry Lage at http://www.twitter.com/larrylage and follow his work at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/larry-lage Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
