SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Jake Peavy pitched seven innings for his first win and added a two-run single off Miami ace Jose Fernandez, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Marlins 7-2 on Saturday night.

Gregor Blanco tripled twice and scored two runs while Matt Duffy had three hits and scored for the Giants, who have won two straight following a five-game losing streak.

Peavy (1-1) failed to get past the fifth inning in his three previous starts and had another up-and-down outing against the Marlins before finishing strong to end his skid.

Miami had runners on base in each of the first six innings but Peavy repeatedly pitched out of trouble while giving up seven hits with four strikeouts and one walk.

Fernandez (1-2) allowed four runs over six innings in his first career start at AT&T Park.


This story has been corrected to show Fernandez allowed four runs over six innings, not hits.
