Stanton hits homer No. 42 help Marlins sweep Rockies 5-3

Posted: Updated:

Giancarlo Stanton homered for the fourth straight game, hitting his 42nd of the year to tie the Marlins' season record, and Miami completed its first series sweep of the Colorado Rockies since 2006, winning 5-3 Sunday.
Stanton homered leading off the third inning to tie Gary Sheffield's team record set in 1996. The homer was Stanton's 21st in the past 33 games.
It was the 250th homer of Stanton's career and came in his 941st game. Only five players since 1913 have reached the 250-milestone faster.
German Marquez (9-5) lost for the first time in his past seven starts, allowing five runs in 4 1/3 innings. Marlins starter Vance Worley gave up three runs in four-plus innings but contributed a two-run single.
Javy Guerra (1-0) earned his first victory since 2014 with two scoreless innings. He protected a two-run lead in the fifth, when he came on with runners at second and third and none out, and escaped without allowing a run.

Nolan Arenado has a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch in the Colorado Rockies' game at Miami.
Following the Rockies' 5-3 loss, Arenado said his hand was swollen and stiff, but X-rays were negative. He says he hopes to be sidelined for only a couple of days and is optimistic he can avoid a stint on the disabled list.
Arenado was hit by an 88-mph fastball thrown by Vance Worley, and consulted with a trainer near the dugout before leaving the game in the fifth inning Sunday. He has 100 RBIs, including 16 game-winning RBIs, which also leads the majors.
The All-Star third baseman has missed only three games this season and is batting .311.
