Nationals-Giants, 1st Ld-Writethru,734

All that made a nice backdrop in the sixth inning for the Giants' Mac Williamson, who took Washington reliever Shawn Kelley's first offering and sliced it 112 miles per hour through the aerial bog, sending it 464 feet into center-right field, the deepest part of the ballpark, for his second home run in four games as a Giant this year.

Seeking a fourth consecutive win, the Giants countered a three-run Nationals first inning with a run in the second on back-to-back doubles by Brandon Crawford and Nick Hundley.

Williamson has wasted no time making an impression on the Giants.

"It's just a tough game to get down like that", Bochy said.

Behind an onslaught of two-out hits with runners in scoring position, the Nationals blasted Samardzija and company during a 15-2 victory that, if nothing else, allowed them to head home at the end of a long and mostly frustrating road trip on a positive note.

"Sure, (I'm) encouraged. But this is a game of adjustments". Williamson stayed down briefly as team trainers rushed out before getting to his feet. I'm frustrated that I didn't make the play."Frustration has deserted the Giants, at least temporarily. I think all his teammates were impressed, too". "I had it in my glove and it came out".

Marlins 8, Dodgers 6 • J.T. Realmuto hit a pair of homers and Miguel Rojas hit a three-run shot as visiting Miami knocked off Los Angeles and Clayton Kershaw.

Roark has been one of the better pitchers in the league so far, rocking a 3.24 ERA with 24 strikeouts and nine walks in 25 innings through four starts. "When you see him in the lineup he'll be ready", manager Dave Martinez said.

"Early, we were having some pretty good at-bats but his stuff picked up ... We just can't get the big hit with people on base".

Reliever Reyes Moronta and Hunter Strickland also are off barring an emergency need due to their workload, so the series will be Strickland-Harper-free.

He dropped struggling leadoff hitter Austin Jackson to No. 7 in the lineup, moving up Andrew McCutchen, Posey and Evan Longoria one slot each from their usual 3-4-5.

The Giants have set their rotation for maximum impact against L.A. Johnny Cueto and Chris Stratton, the two best, will start in the doubleheader Saturday after Derek Holland goes Friday. San Francisco finished 28th in the Major Leagues in home runs in 2016 and 29th past year. Ryan Zimmerman walked and Moises Sierra singled before Taylor's deep drive into the right-field stands.

The crushing blow for Samardzija came in the fourth after he fell behind in the count against outfielder Bryce Harper with two outs and a runner on first. Roark initially couldn't locate the ball but found it in time to throw to first for the out. The right-hander, who had allowed just one run in 14 innings over his two previous outings, improved to 2-1 after giving up four hits and two runs in 6 2/3 innings. After the game, Bochy said the left-hander suffered from food poisoning last week and was given an IV on Monday. "In six of the innings we gave up crooked numbers". Infielder/outfielder Matt Reynolds was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse and outfielder Rafael Bautista and infielder Adrian Sanchez were called up.

After the Giants beat the Angels once and Nats twice by scores of 4-2, 4-2 and 4-3, Samardzija could not pitch that kind of game in his second start off the disabled list.
