Stanton leads Marlins past Braves 6-2

July 11th, 2013 - By Steve James

Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run double

Wednesday to end a 10-game RBI drought, and the Miami Marlins broke

a five-game losing streak by beating Atlanta 6-2.

Stanton had been in a 3-for-26 slump before he put

the Marlins ahead in their four-run first inning against Paul

Maholm (9-8). Placido Polanco added three hits and three RBIs.

Jacob Turner (3-1) allowed four hits and two runs in

seven innings. Steve Cishek allowed two singles in the ninth to

complete a six-hitter.

The Braves won two of three games in the series but

missed a chance for their first road sweep since April 12-14 at

Washington. Miami improved to 3-12 against the Braves at Marlins

Park since it opened in 2012.

With thousands of youngsters in the stands on camp

day, announced attendance was 23,921 – the Marlins’ largest home

crowd since April 27. Miami is last in the major leagues in

attendance.
