Gordon’s inside-the-park homer helps Marlins beat Giants 5-3

MIAMI (AP) – Major league batting leader Dee Gordon hit the first inside-the-park homer in the four-year history of Marlins Park, and the three-run shot helped Miami beat the San Francisco Giants 5-3 Tuesday night.

Miami’s Justin Bour also homered, giving a welcome jolt of power to a team without injured slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

Buster Posey hit his 12th homer for the Giants. He has 18 RBIs in his past 10 games.

Mat Latos (3-5) gave up three runs, two earned, in six innings. Four relievers completed a six-hitter.

Carter Capps, throwing at up to 99 mph, struck out the side in the eighth. He has 38 strikeouts in 20 2-3 innings to go with an ERA of 0.87.
