Garrett Jones also homered for the Marlins, who have won five of seven to get back to the .500 mark at 62-62. Marcell Ozuna and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each drove in two runs and Christian Yelich had three hits.
Tom Koehler (9-9) pitched six innings, allowing two runs.
Stanton hit a three-run homer and Jones also connected in the first against Josh Collmenter (8-7).
Arizona's Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a bunt single in the sixth.
Mark Trumbo and Jake Lamb hit RBI singles in the sixth that pulled Arizona within 5-2.
The Marlins broke open the game by scoring five times in the seventh. Stanton hit an RBI single, Ozuna had a two-run double and Saltalamacchia singled home two runs. Diamondbacks reliever Randall Delgado was charged with five runs and got just one batter out.
This was Miami's highest-scoring game since an 11-6 win at Tampa Bay on June 5.
