Recap


Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Giancarlo Stanton belted his second grand slam in nine days with two outs in the fourth inning as Miami battled back from an early four-run deficit to hand visiting Colorado its fifth straight loss.

Stanton hammered a 3-2 pitch from veteran Jamie Moyer off the scoreboard in left field for a 6-4 lead. Austin Kearns was 4-for-4 with a pair of RBIs for Miami, which improved to a major league-best 15-5 in May.

Marlins starter Mark Buehrle (4-4) allowed just one hit over his last 6 2/3 innings after giving up four runs on four hits in the first. Buehrle also doubled and scored the first of five runs in the fourth.

Hanley Ramirez added two hits and scored three times for the Marlins, who started a 10-game homestand. Heath Bell pitched a hitless ninth for his sixth save.

Jordan Pacheco started the rally in the first with a one-out infield single for the Rockies and Carlos Gonzalez followed with a single. Michael Cuddyer drilled a two-run double to deep left field and Troy Tulowitzki followed with his fifth homer, a two-run blast to left field.

Moyer (2-4) allowed nine hits, four walks and six runs in 3 2/3 innings.
