Giancarlo Stanton had himself a night, smacking two home runs while driving in three RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Marlins 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Monday.
Stanton pummeled Shelby Miller in the first and third inning of the ballgame. They were home runs number 31 and 32 of the season. The massive effort pushes his season line to .292/.393/.568 with the aforementioned 32 home runs overlooked 10 stolen bases. He's having the massive season we've been waiting for and he's a surefire first round pick in next year's drafts. ANALYST:
Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
