Giancarlo Stanton credits HR Derby for fixing swing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has homered in his first two games out of the All-Star break and credits his participation in the Home Run Derby as the reason for helping him snap his power drought.

Stanton had gone 75 plate appearances without a home run before parking his 22nd home run Friday.

"Having to lock in for the Derby made me feel better," Stanton said, per MLB.com. "I wasn't myself the last couple of weeks. The short time off and the Derby kind of helped me out. I think it will be all right."


Giancarlo Stanton slugs 23rd home run Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 loss to the Giants Saturday.

It was the second home run in as many nights for Stanton, who is coming out of the break hot. He now owns sole possession of the home-run lead in the National League. Stanton has hit .295/.395/.552 with 23 home runs and 65 RBI in 359 at-bats.


Giancarlo Stanton hits 22nd home run Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his 22nd home run Friday against the Giants. 

Stanton was the lone standout on offense, accounting for the team's only run. In the bottom of the sixth, Stanton hammered a 77 mph curveball from Madison Bumgarner to center field. Stanton finished 1 for 2, with one run scored and one RBI. He also walked during the game.


Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.

Lopsided score results in Giancarlo Stanton leaving game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Mike Redmond indicated that he might have kept Giancarlo Stanton in a tighter game Wednesday despite a wrist contusion, but a four-run deficit motivated him to remove his slugger. Stanton had an unfriendly encounter with the outfield wall in the top of the first, though he showed no ill-effects when he slammed a home run in the bottom of the inning for the Marlins.

"I saw him kind of grimace after his first at-bat but then he hit the home run so I wasn't too concerned," Redmond told the Palm Beach Post. "As the game went along and it continued to get a little sore, at that point, being down 5-1, I just wanted to make sure we got him out of there. We need this guy for the long haul. He wanted to stay in but I'm thinking about tomorrow and the next day."

Stanton is all but set to play Thursday.
