7/1/2015 | Casilla 'way off' in rare blown save
Given Santiago Casilla's 20 saves in 24 chances this year, there's usually a plausible explanation for his occasional shortcomings. Thus, the reason given for his ninth-inning lapse Wednesday, which featured Justin Bour's game-winning home run that gave the Marlins a 6-5 triumph over the Giants, was easy to accept: He's human.

7/1/2015 | Fernandez, Cain make 2015 debuts in Miami
It has been nearly 14 months since Miami's Jose Fernandez last pitched in the Majors, while San Francisco's Matt Cain has been out for almost 12 months.

7/1/2015 | Cain glad to reach end of 'long road'
No matter how Matt Cain performs Thursday, he'll be pitching again, which is what matters most. Cain, the Giants' three-time All-Star right-hander, will make his first regular-season appearance since July 9, 2014, when he starts the series finale against the Marlins.
