Posey's Streak Ended As Giants Are Shutout

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Anibal Sanchez was nearly perfect on the mound as he tossed his second career shutout in Florida's 5-0 win over San Francisco.

Sanchez (8-6), who authored a no-hitter in 2006, gave up just one hit -- a bloop single by Pablo Sandoval in the bottom of the fifth inning -- walked one and struck out eight.

Mike Stanton and Ronny Paulino knocked in two runs apiece for the Marlins, who split this four-game series at AT&T Park and have won 11 of their last 17 games overall.

Madison Bumgarner (4-3) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings for the Giants, while fellow rookie Buster Posey went 0-for-3 to snap a 21-game hitting streak.

The Marlins got on the board in the second inning. Dan Uggla led off with a walk and came around to score on a two-out double by Stanton.

Florida padded its lead in the fourth. Jorge Cantu and Cody Ross hit consecutive one-out singles before Stanton lined a double to left field. Paulino followed with a sacrifice fly that made it a 3-0 game.

Sanchez retired the first 13 batters he faced before Juan Uribe reached on Cantu's throwing error. Sandoval followed with a base hit to center, but Aaron Rowand flied out and Edgar Renteria grounded into a fielder's choice to end the fifth.

Ross stroked an RBI double off Joe Martinez in the eighth and Paulino supplied another sac fly later in the inning to account for the final score.

Posey's hitting streak was the second-longest by a rookie in San Francisco-era franchise history behind Willie McCovey's 22-gamer in 1959...Bumgarner had won his previous four starts.
