Stanton showcases strong arm

Mike Stanton has created plenty of attention with his bat. The 20-year-old rookie right fielder has 20 home runs since arriving to the big leagues on June 8.

During the first two games in Milwaukee, though, Stanton has made an impact with his arm. On Friday night, he threw out two runners, giving him three assists thus far in the series.

In his first 89 big league games, Stanton now leads all Marlins outfielders in assists with nine.

Stanton’s surge moved him past Chris Coghlan, who had seven in 90 games before he was sidelined with season-ending knee surgery.

As a team, the Marlins have had 35 outfield assists this year. Cody Ross had six assists, while Cameron Maybin and Logan Morrison each have four. Emilio Bonifacio has three, while Brett Carroll added two.

In terms of team history, Stanton’s nine assists ties him with Todd Dunwoody (1998) for the fourth most by a Marlins’ rookie outfielder.

Stanton is now closing in on Preston Wilson, who is third on the team list with10 in 1999. Jeff Conine is second with 11 in 1993.

Still, don’t look for Stanton to challenge the club rookie record. 

The Marlins all-time mark for rookie outfield assists has stood for 12 years, and it should remain for a while longer. In 1998, Mark Kotsay posted 20 assists, which also is an overall franchise record.

Marlins lineup for Sunday

Shortly before the Marlins faced the Phillies on Sunday, Chris Coghlan noted that the beauty of a day game after a night game is “You don’t have to wait 24 hours to play.”

After being on the losing end of a perfect game, the Marlins are eager to get back on the field. On a historic Saturday night, Roy Halladay tossed the 20th perfect game in MLB history, beating the Marlins 1-0.

The Marlins and Phillies wrap up their three-game set at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday, Jamie Moyer is pitching against Anibal Sanchez.

Payback Sunday, tensions mount

Warnings were issued in the seventh inning on Sunday, and some controversy surfaced after the game.

A side story in the Marlins 13-0 victory over the White Sox was a beaning incident that stemmed from Brett Carroll stealing second base in the fourth inning with the Florida ahead by seven runs.

The Marlins had built a big lead off Freddy Garcia, who was lifted after 2 1/3 innings at U.S. Cellular Field.

Garcia surrendered three home runs before he exited.

To open the fourth, reliever Scott Linebrink beaned Carroll.

Carroll stole second base, and also in the inning, Gaby Sanchez had a steal.

Feeling the game was out of hand, the White Sox weren’t happy to see Florida stealing. In the fifth inning, Randy Williams also hit Carroll with a pitch.

In the seventh inning, Florida’s Dan Meyer hit A.J. Pierzynski with a pitch.

At that point, home plate umpire Adrian Johnson issued warnings.

“It’s 7-0. It’s not a good thing to go out and steal a base,” Garcia said. “That’s no respect for the other team. So whatever happened, happened. Stealing second up seven runs, I think that’s bad baseball.”

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said Carroll missed a sign and stole on his own.

“We had nothing going on, sign wise,” Gonzalez said.

Meyer insisted he wasn’t throwing at Pierzynski.

“I wasn’t throwing at anybody,” Meyer said. “I was trying to get outs.”
