Stanton homers, Marlins beat Nationals 4-3

MIAMI (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton homered and the Miami Marlins beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Monday night.

Christian Yelich, Ichiro Suzuki, and Derek Dietrich also drove in a run for the Marlins and A.J. Ramos pitched the ninth for his 38th save in 41 chances.

Danny Espinosa hit a three-run homer and A.J. Cole allowed two runs and four hits in four innings for the Nationals.

Brian Ellington (3-2) picked up the win with an inning of relief while Mat Latos (7-3) took the loss.

Miami’s Wei-Yin Chen made his first start since July 20 due to an elbow strain, and allowed three runs and four hits, ending his night after 4 1/3 innings. Chen threw 44 of 66 pitches for strikes.
