He was to be monitored overnight and is expected back on the bench Tuesday night.San Francisco went 6 for 21 with runners in scoring position and left 18 on base in a game that took 5 hours, 34 minutes -- the longest of the season for both teams.

I was just trying to get the runner in any way I could.Christian Yelich homered and tied a career high with four RBI for the Marlins. Martin Prado also went deep and drove in two runs. They hit back-to-back homers in the fifth.San Francisco threatened in the 13th when Crawford hit a one-out triple off Dustin McGowan (1-3). After the second out, Mattingly intentionally walked two batters to get to the pitchers spot in the order.The Giants were out of position players, leaving ace pitcher Madison Bumgarner, a .183 hitter with legitimate power, to pinch-hit with the bases loaded. He struck out to end the inning.The Marlins took a 5-1 lead into the seventh behind a solid outing from Jose Fernandez, who allowed one run in six innings.The Giants scored five times in the seventh off three relievers and started the inning with six consecutive hits on their way to a 6-5 lead.Miami responded with Yelichs two-run single.
