CINCINNATI (AP) - Giancarlo Stanton led Miami out of its early slump, getting three hits and driving in three runs, and the Marlins beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-3 on Saturday night for their first victory of the season.
Omar Infante, Hanley Ramirez and John Buck homered for the Marlins, who managed a total of one run and seven hits while losing their first two games. Infante also had a double and a triple.
Stanton, who went by the name "Mike" when he hit 34 homers last season, provided the go-ahead runs with a bases-loaded single off Mat Latos (0-1).
Ricky Nolasco (1-0) gave up six hits in eight innings, including Joey Votto's first homer since signing a new contract with an additional 10 years and $225 million.
