The Giants beat the rain, and the Miami Marlins, 4-3, Sunday in San Francisco on the wet Oracle Park sod to earn a four-game series win. 

Following a frustrating 5-2 loss to Miami the previous night, the Giants weathered the storm and improved their record to 14-8 on the season. It was all thanks to Logan Webb, too. 

The young starter did it all, throwing seven scoreless innings while also helping himself at the plate. The win was Webb's first of the year. 

Here are three more things to know about Sunday's win over the Marlins 

The Logan Webb Show

Webb had by far his best start of the season. As he looks to secure his spot in the rotation when Johnny Cueto returns from the injured list, Webb was effectively wild, allowing just three hits in a season-high seven innings pitched. He struck out eight batters, which tied his career-high coming into the game.

The 24-year-old entered Sunday with a 5.87 ERA through his first four appearances. He leaves the day with a 4.03 ERA. 

Not only did Webb have his way with Miami's bats, he had the biggest hit of the day with a two-run triple in the bottom of the second inning. The triple had a 109-mph exit velocity and traveled 390 feet. 

Jason Vosler's First Career Hit

Vosler made his MLB debut Saturday night. On Sunday, with his mom, dad and girlfriend in the stands, Vosler got his career hit in the big leagues. 

 

Remember, it's a line drive in the books. 

Vosler was robbed in his first at-bat of the day, crushing the ball to the wall in center field, but right into the glove of former Giants outfielder Adam Duvall. He also stole second base following his first hit.

Curt Casali's Streak Comes To An End

Casali came into the day catching five straight shutouts. That's 45 straight innings behind the dish without the Giants allowing a run. 

The streak continued Sunday into the eighth inning until Matt Wisler gave up a two-run homer to Jesus Aguilar with two outs. Casali had caught 52 2/3 straight scoreless inning. His five straight shutouts are second to Ed Phelps, who has the record with six in 1903.

Casali now has caught eight games this season. Five have been shutouts.
