MIAMI, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Gregor Blanco stroked a two-run triple in the fourth inning Saturday, backing Matt Cain's strong start in San Francisco's 6-4 win over Miami.

The Giants grabbed control in the fourth with a four-run uprising.

They forged a 2-0 lead on a Pablo Sandoval single and a run-scoring balk by pitcher Henderson Alvarez before Blanco lined a pitch that got past diving center fielder Jake Marisnick and rolled to the wall for a two-run triple.

Sandoval finished with two RBI and Andres Torres also drove in a run for San Francisco, which clinched its three-game series.

Cain (8-8) allowed two runs on four hits over seven solid innings, walking two and striking out five.

Alvarez (2-2) ended up yielding four runs on four hits over seven innings.

Giancarlo Stanton clouted a mammoth two-run homer and Logan Morrison also drove in two runs for the Marlins.
