Stanton homers in 3rd straight game, but Marlins finish homestand with loss

MIAMI (AP) -- Daniel Nava tied a career high with four hits and the Philadelphia Phillies had a season-best 20 hits Wednesday to beat Miami 10-3 and win a road series for only the third time this season.

Nava singled in each of his first four at-bats, drove in two runs and hiked his average to .300.

Rookie Nick Williams had the first two triples of his career, while Freddy Galvis had three hits and scored three times. Cesar Hernandez and Tommy Joseph also had three hits apiece, and Maikel Franco drove in three runs.

The Phillies completed a 3-3 trip but still have the worst record in the majors.

Miami's Giancarlo Stanton hit his 30th homer to forge a tie with the Yankees' Aaron Judge for the major league lead in homers. Christian Yelich hit his ninth homer for the Marlins.

Both homers came against Nick Pivetta (3-5), who has allowed 16 homers in 69 1/3 innings this season. He gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings and threw two wild pitches in the third inning, with the second allowing a run to score.

Four relievers completed a seven-hitter.

Dan Straily (7-5) lost for the first time since June 5. He allowed four runs in five innings.

The Phils won despite stranding a season-high 15 runners.


Stanton homered in the first inning for the third game in a row when he drove a breaking ball from Pivetta into the center field hedge. The Marlins slugger has nine homers in his past 10 starts, and his nine homers this month are a franchise record for July.

His season high for homers is 37.
