Stanton scores 3 times, Marlins top D-Backs 7-5

Stanton scores 3 times, Marlins top D-Backs 7-5

SAN DIEGO - Ian Desmond hit the third grand slam of his career and Nolan Arenado added a two-run homer and three RBIs to support the four-hit pitching of Tyler Chatwood as Colorado ended San Diego's five-game winning streak.

"There were some things that made me think we were a little hung over from yesterday's long game", Lovullo said, "but we came through when we needed to".

Volquez was one of the pitchers the Marlins brought in this past offseason in part to fill the void caused by the death of ace Jose Fernandez, who died in a boat crash last September. "And I got it". Along the way, the two Dominican right-handers forged a close friendship.

The New York Mets say someone else worked as the team mascot at Thursday night's game against Milwaukee.

Jeff Conine is third on the Marlins' all-time RBIs list with 553 and Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is fourth with 523. One fan said Mr. Met just got upset and his reaction was "a NY thing".

Volquez finally notched his first win after holding the Phillies to one run and three hits over six innings on Monday.

That left it up to Owings, another pinch-hitter.

Nearly as remarkably, the pitcher who has battled control issues all season - he entered with 31 walks in 52 2/3 innings - was efficient with his pitches and finished with a flourish, striking out Nick Ahmed, Daniel Descalso and Chris Owings, all on changeups.

The Marlins, though, didn't allow a run after that and then tacked on an important run in the seventh on a J.T. Realmuto RBI single. They've scored one or two runs in seven of his 10 outings.

Payless Shoes Valley View Mall store may close
Back in April, Payless filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protections and announced its first wave of 405 store closures. Four stores in Wisconsin, including the one in La Crosse, are on the list.


Volquez threw a one-hitter for San Diego against Houston on July 19, 2012 - the only blemish that night coming on a fourth-inning infield single by the Astros' Matt Downs.

In Baltimore, Wade Miley allowed one run in seven innings, Mark Trumbo hit the first of Baltimore's four home runs off Eduardo Rodriguez and the Orioles beat Boston.

The last no-hitter in Marlins history was thrown by Henderson Alvarez in 2013.

Volquez is the epitome of a baseball journeyman. J.J. Hoover would come in in the eighth and give up a leadoff walk to Stanton, a single to Yelich, and a single to Ozuna, scoring Stanton and making the score 2-0 Marlins.

He was an All-Star in 2008, when he went 17-6 with Cincinnati and was basically the lone bright spot for the Reds in what was a dismal season.

Diamondbacks: Arizona rested Owings (3 for his last 22, before the appearance in the ninth) and LF Yasmany Tomas (3 for his last 25).

However, Stanton missed the Wednesday game because of what was called a cramp in his left hamstring. The game tips off at 7:00 PM EST in Marlins Park.

Shipley (0-1, 6.75) starts for Arizona against Miami's Vance Worley (0-2, 4.50) in the series finale.

Leake, who entered leading the National League in earned run average at 2.24, allowed five runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings (see full recap).
