Stanton belts No. 20 in Game No. 71

MIAMI — Giancarlo Stanton reached the 20 home run plateau in the Marlins’ 71st game.

With two outs in the first inning, Stanton blistered a drive to right-center off Cubs’ right-hander Jake Arrieta.

The 20 before the All-Star Break are a personal high for Stanton, who had 19 in 2012.

In club history, a Marlin has reached 20 or more homers prior to the Break.
