Stanton powers Marlins past Padres 8-2

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - Giancarlo Stanton hit a long home run to help lead the Miami Marlins to an 8-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia had three hits and drove in two runs and Adeiny Hechavarria had a career-high four hits for the Marlins, who have won four of five to start the season.

Tom Koehler (1-0) pitched six innings, allowing two runs and Brad Hand pitched three scoreless innings for his first career save.

Yasmani Grandal and Jedd Gyorko each had two hits for the Padres, who have lost three straight. Eric Stults (0-1) allowed five runs in four innings.

Stanton's two-run blast traveled an estimated 458 feet to left field, nearly leaving the stadium and giving the Marlins a 2-0 lead in the first inning.
