SAN FRANCISCO — German Marquez of the Colorado Rockies lost his no-hit bid on Evan Longoria's one-out single in the eighth inning Sunday at San Francisco.
After Gold Glove third baseman Nolan Arenado made a nifty play on a hard one-hopper by Brandon Crawford to begin the eighth Sunday, Longoria followed by grounding a single past Arenado's dive.
The Giants had only one runner until Longoria's hit.
The 24-year-old Marquez was making his second start since signing a $43 million, five-year contract.
Marquez was a Class A prospect with the Rays before being traded to the Rockies along with Jake McGee in January 2016 for Corey Dickerson and minor-league infielder Kevin Padlo.
Longoria, the greatest player in Rays history, was traded to the Giants in December 2017 for Christian Arroyo, Denard Span and minor-league pitchers Stephen Woods and Matt Krook.
