DENVER (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton homered for the sixth straight game at Coors Field and the Miami Marlins held on to beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 Saturday night.
Nathan Eovaldi pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Bryan Petersen had three hits for the Marlins. Jose Reyes and Gorkys Hernandez added two hits each.
Tyler Colvin had three hits and three RBIs while Josh Rutledge and Dexter Fowler added two hits apiece for the Rockies.
The Marlins said Stanton became the first player in major league history to homer in his first six games in a visiting park, according to information provided to the team by the Elias Sports Bureau. His drive Saturday traveled an estimated 448 feet, and combined with Friday’s shot to center he has covered approximately 920 feet on his last two homers at Coors Field.
