SAN FRANCISCO Including their two World Series championship runs, the San Francisco Giants since July 29, 2010 are 146-100 at AT&T Park. None of those wins have come against the Marlins. With a come-from-behind 6-3 victory late Friday, the Marlins extended their winning streak at China Basin to nine in a row. That’s the longest road run over a single opponent in franchise history. Logan Morrison homered and tripled. Ed Lucas and Marcell Ozuna had two hits apiece and combined to score three runs as the Marlins improved to 3-2 on the road trip. “I don’t know. I’m a baseball player, not a sociologist?” said Morrison, about the club’s San Francisco streak. “I don’t even know what that would be. I’m not a Sabermetrics guy. Whatever that guy is, that’s what I’m not.” Eleven National League regulars began play Wednesday hitting .350 or better with two out and runners in scoring position. Ozuna is now among that group. Both of his hits Friday, including the go-ahead, RBI-single in the eighth, and Thursday’s pinch-hit, RBI-single, came in those situations. He is now 7-for-20 (.350) with two doubles, a triple and nine RBI with two outs and RISP. “Those are the things that we’re looking for,” said manager Mike Redmond, who’s watched Ozuna in the last two games emerge from a 1-for-24 skid. “Even as a young player, can you come to the big leagues and go through some tough times and respond and be able to recover…Hopefully he’s going to catch fire.” The Marlins batted around in what proved to be the decisive eighth inning. Ozuna, pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs and Adeiny Hechavarria all reached on consecutive two-out singles. Shortstop Joaquin Arias’ throwing error also contributed to the three-run, four-hit inning, which was not without some controversy. With one out and one on, a Jake Dunning pitch appeared to hit Giancarlo Stanton on the hand. Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy argued the ball hit the bat knob first, and replays showed he had a good case. Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco remains undefeated at AT&T Park, but he wasn’t sharp enough to make it five wins in as many career outings here. His night ended when counterpart Tim Lincecum reached on a two-out, stand-up triple in the sixth for the Giants’ ninth hit.
