MIAMI, May 24 (UPI) -- Angel Pagan and Melky Cabrera combined for eight RBI Thursday and led a late-game assault that lifted the San Francisco Giants to a 14-7 victory over Miami.
The score was deadlocked at 1-1 through five innings but the teams erupted for 19 runs the rest of the way. The Giants and Marlins combined for 28 hits.
San Francisco broke open the tight game with a four-run sixth that featured a two-run double by Pagan. The Giants added three more in the seventh, two of them scoring on a double by Cabrera and the third run coming in on a fielder's choice grounder from Pagan.
