MIAMI -- Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants could have used a night to rest.

A day after hitting his 715th homer to move past Babe Ruth into second place on baseball's career list, Bonds and his teammates looked like a club drained by the historic milestone and a subsequent cross-country flight in a 5-1 loss to the Florida Marlins on Monday night.

Mike Jacobs hit a solo homer and Scott Olsen pitched seven strong innings for Florida, which took advantage of San Francisco's weariness.

"We had a good frame of mind, but our bodies were not there. We seemed dead out there," Giants manager Felipe Alou said.

Bonds, who only has Hank Aaron ahead of him on the home run list, was 1-for-4 with a single. Asked if the slugger -- playing for the fourth straight day -- appeared tired, Alou reiterated the entire team was fatigued.

"I feel tired and I'm not even playing," the manager said. "I think everybody here needs a good night's sleep."

The Marlins rebounded from losing the last two games of a weekend series against the New York Mets. Olsen (3-3) allowed one run and five hits before being replaced by Logan Kensing, who got Bonds to foul out in deep left field with one runner on in the eighth. Joe Borowski worked the ninth to finish the five-hitter.

Jacobs homered off Matt Morris (3-6) in the fourth inning, giving the Marlins a 1-0 lead with his sixth drive of the season. Josh Willingham and Jeremy Hermida added RBI singles off the Giants starter in the sixth.

Morris allowed six hits and three runs in six innings. The former St. Louis right-hander struck out four and walked one, losing for the sixth time in his last seven decisions with his new team.

"You come into a new situation and you want to lead by example," Morris said. "Obviously this isn't where you want to be."

Dan Uggla made it 5-1 with a two-run single off Brian Wilson in the seventh.

Ray Durham hit his fourth homer in the seventh for the Giants.

Olsen, who feared he was on the verge of being demoted to the minors after struggling in his previous two starts, called the outing the best of his career.

"That's pretty much all the motivation you need," Olsen said.

A small, but mostly appreciative crowd stood and cheered Bonds when he stepped up to the plate for his first at-bat and again when he singled off Olsen in the fourth.

"He's an exciting player to watch. You never take our eyes off him when he's hitting," Marlins manager Joe Girardi said. "You don't do that with all hitters."

The announced crowd of 7,683 at Dolphin Stadium was the smallest Bonds has played in front of this season. The sparse gathering on a night when the Miami Heat hosted Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals didn't surprise at least one of Bonds' teammates.

"I played in Montreal when Sammy (Sosa) and (Mark) McGwire were doing their thing and they had crowds of 5,000," reliever Steve Kline said.

Despite Monday night's loss, Kline thinks Bonds moving ahead of Ruth has helped restore order in the San Francisco clubhouse.

"We got accustomed to it," Kline said. "But now we can go back to the way it was before 714 and 715. Maybe guys can relax a little more."

Notes

Alou said Bonds will be in the lineup again Tuesday night, then will be given Wednesday off. That will give the slugger two days of rest before the Giants open a weekend series in New York. ... Bonds said he has no plans to contact Andrew Morbitzer -- the fan who wound up with the ball he hit for his 715th home run -- in hopes of retrieving the momento. "Why?" he said. "If I had it, I wouldn't give it back." ... Uggla, who went 2-for-4, has hit safely in 16 of his last 19 games.
