  • September 20, 2016 Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton home run during a game between the Miami Marlins and the Washington Nationals at Marlins Park in Miami FL

Stanton has handled the San Francisco Giants so far this season, with four home runs in four games, all Miami wins.

Stanton is two games away from tying the major league record of eight consecutive games with a home run, which has been done three times: by Dale Long in 1956, Don Mattingly in 1987 and

The record comes just hours after Stanton won the National League Player of the Week. The Denver native has been able to enjoy success despite only striking out 63 in 128 innings in part because he has kept the ball in the park (10 homers allowed).

Rockies 3, Braves 0: In Denver, Chad Bettis drew a standing ovation when he took the mound for the first time since cancer treatment, then threw seven impressive innings as Colorado beat Atlanta.

The Giants' three-run seventh inning outburst gave way to reliever Mark Melancon, who pitched in his second game since returning from the disabled list on Saturday. The outing marked the second straight time the 27-year-old Washington State product failed to last six innings after he did so in each of his three July turns, during which he went 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA. This will be the 14th consecutive season the Marlins have missed the postseason, and given their injury-ravaged pitching staff, Stanton harbors no illusions of a miracle run.

Tampa Bay went 2-7 on a nine-game homestand in which the Rays were shut out five times and scored 11 runs.

Gallagher came to the plate with two outs in the sixth and lined A's rookie right-hander Jharel Cotton's 3-2 fastball into the left field seats, giving Kansas City a 6-1 lead. "He smiles a lot when he's hitting homers".

The A.L. West-leading Astros have lost six of seven. The Giants have scored one run or none in half of his starts.

Manny Machado hit a grand slam off former teammate Yovani Gallardo as the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Seattle Mariners.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Matt Chapman hit a tiebreaking three-run homer off Jeremy Hellickson (1-2) in a five-run fourth as Oakland overcame a 2-0 deficit. For Aaron Judge it was one of extended failure. It was his third home run in two games.

Dele Alli: Tottenham 'had to keep cool' to beat Newcastle
The Citizens then padded their lead when Brighton's Lewis Dunk scored an own-goal just five minutes later. Asked if he felt let down, Benitez said: "It's not me, it's everyone".
