MIAMI (AP) Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton broke a three-game homerless drought with his 52nd of the season in the first inning of Saturday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Stanton’s estimated 445-foot blast against Phillies starter Aaron Nola bounced off the wall in front of the walkway above center field in Marlins Park.

The homer snapped a 1-for-17 slump for Stanton and gave Miami a 1-0 lead.
