Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with an RBI-single in the third inning of Thursday's extra innings win over the Diamondbacks.
The 24-year-old phenom just continues to rake and is proving why he has emerged as one of the top players in baseball. After Thursday's game, Stanton is batting .292 with 31 home runs and 83 RBIs. He is one of the front runners for the NL MVP award.ANALYST: David Kerr
