Hanley exits feeling light-headed

Hanley Ramirez was removed from the game in the top of the third inning on Sunday after  feeling light headed on the field.

The Marlins All-Star shortstop singled to open the third inning off Atlanta’s Derek Lowe. After Dan Uggla reached on a check-swing infield single, when his head-first slide was ruled to be ahead of Eric Hinske’s foot reaching the base. Ramirez stopped at second base.

But as Lowe was getting ready to pitch to Gaby Sanchez, Ramirez motioned to the dugout. His right hand was over his chest as he walked towards manager Edwin Rodriguez and assistant trainer Mike Kozak. While being checked out, Ramirez doubled over a second before walking to the dugout.

It was 82 degrees at Turner Field.

Donnie Murphy replaced Ramirez at shortstop.

In the first inning, Ramirez belted a three-run homer off Lowe. It was his 18th of the season, giving him 67 RBIs.

Marlins open crucial series

After taking two of three from the Mets in New York, the Marlins are two games above .500 as they open a three game series at Atlanta.

The Marlins are 8 1/2 in back of the Braves in the NL East, and they’re six games out in the Wild Card chase.

“The way I see it, and pretty much the way the whole team sees it, every game is important to us, regardless of it we play the Braves or any other team,” manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “We had a very good series in New York. I think we have the momentum going our way. This is the time, we’re playing the teams that are ahead of us.

“If we have a very good series here, we’re going to start putting some pressure on the teams above us.”

Hanley back hitting third

Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez talked about it a day ago. The switch became official on Wednesday.

The Marlins shuffled their lineup against the Mets, sliding Hanley Ramirez down to the No. 3 spot in the lineup for the first time since July 27.

Cameron Maybin moved to the leadoff spot in the second game of the Marlins’ series with New York.

Rodriguez wanted Ramirez hitting third because he feels the slugger is better suited to drive in runs. Often as a leadoff batter, he his hitting with no one on base.

Ramirez also sported a new look on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, he colored his hair. He was trying to change it to blonde, but instead it turned red.

The Marlins lineup for Wednesday is: Cameron Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Mike Stanton (RF), Wes Helms (3B), Brett Hayes (C), Alex Sanabia (P).

Will Hanley return to hitting third?

When Chris Coghlan went on the disabled list with a torn meniscus in his left knee, Hanley Ramirez moved from batting third to leading off.

Now that Cameron Maybin has rejoined the team, Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez is considering getting Ramirez back to the third spot in the lineup.

If all goes well, it could occur this week. The key, Rodriguez says, is Maybin.

Brought up from Triple-A New Orleans now that Cody Ross is with the Giants, Maybin batted seventh on Tuesday at New York.

If Maybin makes consistent contact, look for him to eventually slide to the leadoff spot.

Rodriguez feels Ramirez is best suited to bat third, ahead of Dan Uggla.

The possible lineup by the end of the week could be Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Mike Stanton (RF), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Wes Helms (3B), Brett Hayes (C) and then the pitcher.

More about Mike Stanton

Get used to hearing more about Mike Stanton.

At the rate the Marlins rookie right fielder is going, expect to see more news about him reaching levels rarely seen before.

The 6-foot-5 1/2, 240-pounder on Friday had his first multi-home run game when he went deep twice at Cincinnati.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Stanton is the first Major League player under the age of 21 to homer twice in a game since Miguel Cabrera on April 13, 2004 at Montreal.

Elias also provided this bit of information. At 20 years, 278 days (as of Friday), Stanton is the youngest player to have a two homer game since Jose Reyes (20 years, 78 days) on Aug. 28, 2003 at Atlanta.

Remarkably, Stanton is climbing fast among the MLB rookie home run leaders. It’s only surprising because his competition has played in far more games. But now with 14, he has passed Gaby Sanchez and Jason Heyward, who both have 12.

Tyler Colvin of the Cubs paces all rookies with 18. It may be a matter of time before Stanton assums the top spot.

Rookie home run leaders:

Tyler Colvin: 18 (105 G)
Ike Davis: 15 (100 G)
Brennan Boesch: 14 (93 G)
Mike Stanton: 14 (54 G)
Jason Heyward: 12 (96 G)
Gaby Sanchez: 12 (107 G)
