Stanton returns to lineup for series opener
After missing six games due to a bruised left shoulder, Giancarlo Stanton was back in the Marlins’ lineup, anchoring the No. 3 spot in the order.
The Marlins open a four-game set with the Reds at Great American Ball Park.
The game features two exciting pitching prospects. Jose Fernandez makes his third start for the Marlins, while the Reds will be going with lefty Tony Cingrani.
Chris Valaika will be starting at shortstop in place of Adeiny Hechavarria, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a bruised right elbow.
