Giancarlo Stanton hits 42nd home run as Miami Marlins defeat Colorado Rockies

Arenado was in considerable pain and nearly immediately left the field and went into the Rockies clubhouse.

However, X-rays revealed that the All-Star third baseman has a contusion and no broken bones, dodging a major injury bullet that could have not only halted his season for an extended period of time but also dealt a blow to Colorado's aspirations of securing a postseason berth.

"I've gotten hit in the hand before, but it didn't feel like this". That told me that this was a pretty direct hit.

"Any time you get hit up there, and we saw it spring training with Ian (Desmond)".

Colorado starter German Marquez (9-5) took the loss, allowing five runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Scaramucci: Trump 'needed to be much harsher' on white supremacists
Breitbart has close ties with the alt-right movement, an ideology that can be associated with white nationalism. But I think it's important for the people around him, George, to give him direct advice, to be blunt with him.

Odrisamer Despaigne pitched a flawless ninth for his first career save. Manager Don Mattingly said he had limited options in the bullpen because of a recent heavy workload, but four relievers combined for five shutout innings. He has 100 RBIs, including 16 game-winning RBIs, which also leads the majors.

Miami opened the scoring with two runs in the second.

NOTES: Rockies rookie 1B Ryan McMahon, who made his first big-league start, got an eighth-inning single for his first hit.

Stanton has homered in each of his last four games. The Marlins on Monday open a three-game series against the visiting San Francisco Giants.
