Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his 42nd home run of the season Sunday to tie the franchise single-season record and reach 250 for his career.
The club record previously had been held by Gary Sheffield, who hit 42 homers with the Marlins in 1996.
Stanton blasted an opposite-field solo shot in the bottom of the third inning against Colorado Rockies right-hander German Marquez. He has homered in each of the Marlins' last four games and has nine homers in their last 10 games.
