(Colo.)- Stanton Hits 40th HR As Marlins Beat Rockies 6-3

"He can get 70", Ozuna said, via Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

The club record previously belonged to Gary Sheffield, who hit 42 homers with the Marlins in 1996. His 40th dinger already set a new career high, but he's probably not making it to 70.

The Colorado Rockies received three hits from their shortstop Pat Valaika in the game, but no runs or RBIs.

Pompeo told "Fox News Sunday" that Venezuela "could very much become a risk" to the US if it descended into further chaos. US President Donald Trump on Friday threatened that he would not rule out a "military option" in Venezuela.

Odrisamer Despaigne pitched a ideal ninth for his first career save. "It's not something I'll fully appreciate until the year is over, but it's a cool thing to have under my belt, and I've got time to get more". Pitcher German Marquez had four strikeouts over 4.1 innings but also gave up all five runs so he ended up with a loss, taking his record to 9-5.

Stanton has now homered 21 times in the past 33 games, an epic stretch of power that hasn't occurred in more than 15 years.

Miami opened the scoring with two runs in the second. While his HR tied the game, it was a double from Mike Aviles in the bottom of the fourth that broke the tie.
