Stanton went 2-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run, an additional RBI and a strikeout in a 7-6 loss to the Mets on Sunday.

Stanton opened the game's scoring with a first-inning RBI double and tacked on a two-run shot in the seventh off Mets reliever Brad Hand to tie the game. The slugging outfielder has compiled a modest five-game hitting streak, going 8-for-21 during the stretch, though Sunday's hits were his first of the extra-base variety.
