MIAMI -- Coming off a historic seven-hit performance, Brandon Crawford was unable to find any holes Tuesday night.Crawford was hitless in four at-bats and the San Francisco Giants had only three hits in a 2-0 loss to the Miami Marlins.I said it (Monday) one day youre going to be good, find some holes up there and some days, youre not going to square the ball up and when you do its going to be right at somebody, Crawford said. Thats the game. Thats baseball.Crawford went 7 for 8, including the go-ahead RBI in the top of the 14th, on Monday.We came up with a plan, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. We got him out.The loss, combined with Los Angeles win over Philadelphia, has the Giants in a first place tie atop the NL West with the Dodgers. The Giants were alone in first place since May 15.Tom Koehler continued his impressive second half with another sharp outing pitching seven innings and allowing two hits.Hes basically been our best pitcher for the last month, Mattingly said.Koehler (9-8) struck out six and walked three. He is 3-0 with a 0.67 ERA over his last four starts.Weve got a long way to go here and Im not trying to get too high on anything thats been going on because this game can humble you quick and things can change really fast, Koehler said. I know what were trying to do here and I want to be a part of something really special. I think we have a special group and Im trying to do everything I can every fifth day to be a part of that.Giancarlo Stantons RBI double and Marcell Ozunas groundout in the first inning provided the scoring the day after a 14-inning game won by the Giants 8-7.Fernando Rodney, filling in for the injured A.J. Ramos, pitched the ninth to record his 19th save in 21 opportunities.Giants manager Bruce Bochy was back in the dugout after missing Mondays game with an irregular heartbeat following an overnight stay in a local hospital.Stantons RBI double came off a broken bat that bounced over the head of left fielder Angel Pagan and one-hopped the wall scoring Dee Gordon, who reached on a lead-off walk.Ive never seen anything like that, Koehler said. Thats a joke. That guy is so strong. A bats not supposed to go 110 feet and the ball 370. It just doesnt make sense, but Im glad hes on our side.Ozuna followed Stanton with a groundout scoring Martin Prado.The Giants had three at-bats with runners in scoring position without recording a hit after going 6 for 21 the previous game.Thats huge, Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis said. Anytime you have those less-stress innings or guys arent on the sacks it makes it a little bit easier and a little bit less hectic and Im just happy we were able to do that tonight.Giants starter Matt Moore (7-8) allowed two runs and three hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked five.I felt I was fighting my rhythm all night, Moore said. I felt in the sixth inning I was closer to what Im looking for.Pagan had two of the Giants three hits.Were just not firing on all cylinders right now with our lineup, Bochy said.MARLINS STREAKINGStanton has an RBI in five consecutive games, Christian Yelich has an eight-game hitting streak, and Gordon has scored a run in six straight games.Also, J.T. Realmuto, who was given the day off, has an 11-game hitting streak.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: Stanton left in the eighth inning with soreness in his right hip area after making a sliding catch in Mondays game. Stanton will not play Wednesday in what was already a scheduled day off for him before the injury. He thought he was going to be able to get through the game today, but I think hes all right, Mattingly said.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (9-8, 4.40 ERA) will start the final game of the series on Wednesday afternoon. Samardzija has struggled over his last four starts going 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA.Marlins: RHP David Phelps (5-5, 2.45) will start his second consecutive game after moving into the rotation from the set-up role. Phelps threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings with 70 pitches in a 5-3 win at Colorado in his last start. Daniel Carrico Jersey. Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed.

Ricardo Carvalho Jersey. -- Nathan Pancel scored twice as the Sudbury Wolves defeated the North Bay Battalion 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.soccerportugalnationalshop.us/Beto-Portugal-Jersey/. That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Pepe Portugal Jersey. Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield. Eduardo Portugal Jersey. Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4. South African golfer Jaco van Zyl is bucking the trend and skipping two majors this month -- the British Open and the PGA Championship -- so he can be fresh for the Olympics.Theres a long list of players who have gone the other way and opted out of golfs return to the Olympics after 112 years, either because of the Zika virus or for scheduling reasons.Top-ranked Jason Day and Rory McIlroy are among 12 eligible players so far choosing to give the Rio de Janeiro Games a miss. Three South Africans alone, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and Branden Grace, decided not to go, giving Van Zyl his chance on South Africas team.Ranked No. 65 in the world, Van Zyl said he had been feeling the effects of a long season and, adamant that he wanted to play at the Olympics, he chose to withdraw from next weeks British Open and the PGA from July 28-31. The Olympics are next month.I expect that there will be a caamp that will criticize me for withdrawing from the majors, Van Zyl told South African website Sport24.dddddddddddd. Rory (McIlroy) said in a recent press conference that we play four `Olympics a year because major titles are what we play for, but I dont agree. To me, the Olympics is the pinnacle of all sporting events.The majors will still be there next year, but I dont know if I will get another chance (at the Olympics) in 2020.Van Zyls decision will be a small but welcome boost for Rio organizers, who had envisioned a golf competition with the best players in the world battling it out for an Olympic gold medal. That wont be the case. Alongside Day and four-time major winner McIlroy, another five players in the top 25 in the world have said they are not going to Rio.
