Stephen Strasburg showed why his debut was a big deal and the other rookie making his debut Tuesday night hasn't had too bad of a game, either.
Marlins right fielder Mike Stanton has two hits as the Marlins lead the Phillies 8-7 in the middle of the eighth. Stanton reached on an infield single in his first at-bat and then single again in his fourth. Stanton led off the eighth inning with a liner to right and then scored on Wes Helms' triple.
Stanton has a reputation for his amazing power, but went the other way off of Phillies reliever Jose Contreras for his second hit of the night. Stanton also struck out once. Along with his 21 minor league homers at Double-A Jacksonville, Stanton also struck out 53 times in 190 at-bats.
