Giancarlo Stanton ties Marlins' single-season record with 42nd HR

It was a lost weekend for the seemingly playoff-bound Colorado Rockies, and Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was a big reason why. It was the 250th homer of Stanton's career and came in his 941st game.

Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado suffered a contusion on his left hand when he was hit by a pitch in Sunday's game against the Marlins.

"He can get 70", Ozuna said, via Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

Stanton's four-game home run streak is the second such streak of his career and the second-longest streak this season. That includes Odrisamer Despaigne, who pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his first major-league save.

Stanton lined a 3-2 fastball over the right field fence to make the score 3-all, giving him at least one home run in eight of the past 10 games.

Stanton has now homered 21 times in the past 33 games, an epic stretch of power that hasn't occurred in more than 15 years. He has 100 RBIs, including 16 game-winning RBIs, which also leads the majors. "Definitely good company to be in".
