Giancarlo Stanton is officially back after hitting another two home runs on Sunday giving him three in a 24 hour period.   The two blasts paced the Miami Marlins to a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs.   It was the sixth win of the year for Miami which brings their record to 6-19.   Going into Saturday’s game, Stanton had no home runs and looked lost at the plate at times.  The three in 24 hours give him the team lead in home runs. It wasn’t all about Stanton in this one as Ricky Nolasco turned in a quality start to win his second game of the season.   Nolasco allowed three runs on four hits in his seven innings on the mound.   The Marlins’ ace also struck out two to go along with a pair of free passes.    It took Nolasco exactly 100 pitches to get through his day before Mike Dunn took over and earned a hold in the eighth.  For the ninth, it was Steve Cishek and the Marlins’ closer picked up his third save of the year. Nick Green homered in the seventh inning, his first of the year to give Miami it’s first three home run game of the year.   On Saturday, the Marlins had their first multi home run game so things appear to be turning around for an offense that really needs some positive signs.    Stanton also singled and walked in the game and scored three times to go along with four runs batted in. Miami will look to make it two wins in a row on Monday when Jose Fernandez is scheduled to face the New York Mets.
