Giancarlo Stanton doubled, scored a run, and stole a base in four at-bats of Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the Giants.
Stanton had homered in his previous two games so I am a little disappointed in his performance.. All kidding aside Stanton is on pace to play his first full season since appearing in 150 games back in 2011. A healthy Stanton is a fun player to watch and this season has been no different as he hitting .295 with 23 home runs and 65 RBI. The Marlins next game comes against Julio Teheran and the Braves. Teheran has actually fared well against Stanton holding him to just two hits over 15 at bats ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
