MIAMI (AP) - All-Star Tim Hudson pitched into the eighth inning and got the run support he needed as the San Francisco Giants beat the Miami Marlins 5-3 on Saturday night.

Hunter Pence drove in two runs and Pablo Sandoval had three hits for the Giants, who have won four of five.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his National League-best 23rd home run for Miami, which has lost six straight.

Hudson (8-6) came into the game with just five runs of support in his last five starts, but the Giants jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning, which was enough for the 39-year old veteran.

Marlins All-Star starter Henderson Alvarez (6-5) departed with a bruised left shin after being hit by a grounder by Joe Panik in the third.
