Stanton slugged two home runs and drove in three on Thursday in the Marlins' 7-1 win over the Braves at Marlins Park, and the All-Star right fielder now has 59 homers with three games remaining.

"They're loud and quick, and they're fun to watch," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. "They're amazing when you see those. It's been fun watching them. It's pretty amazing to me that somebody hits that many. It's just a lot of homers."
