Emilio Bonifacio Injury Update: Outfielder Awaits MRI Results On Knee

Miami Marlins outfielder Emilio Bonifacio is injured once again. The 27-year-old left Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second inning with pain in his knee, and will miss Wednesday's doubleheader according to The Palm Beach Post:

"It started bothering me when I made the first throw third (base) and then after the other one. I made two to third and one to the plate," he said.

"I've never felt that. I was concerned. I can't really step really hard."

Bonifacio started the year off leading the league in stolen bases, but suffered a thumb injury which landed him on the disabled list until mid-July. He re-injured the thumb again on Aug. 4 and there was fear that his season would be over, but Bonafacio was reinstated Aug. 25.

He is listed as day-to-day.

Marlins Vs. Diamondbacks Recap: Stanton, Miami Win 6-5 In 10th

After coming from behind to tie Tuesday night's game in the sixth inning, the Marlins took the lead for the first time in the top of the 10th, and went on to win 6-5.

Gorkys Hernandez scored on a Giancarlo Stanton single to put Miami in front during the first inning of extras. This came after Hernandez legged out an infield single.

Said manager Ozzie Guillen, "That is the reason I love speed. Anything can happen and speed never goes into a slump."

Stanton has been red hot lately, with multiple hits in five of his last seven games. During that span he's jacked five home runs and batted in 11 runs.

Ricky Nolasco was shaky for his second start in a row, but the Marlins' bullpen kept things close, generating five scoreless innings after Nolasco left.

Giancarlo Stanton's Home Run Streak Finally Ends

Giancarlo Stanton's consecutive-game home run streak at Coors Field ended on Sunday. Stanton had hit home runs in each of his first six games at Coors Field. He is the first player in baseball history to hit home runs in his first six games at any ballpark.

Stanton hit three tape-measure home runs in the Marlins' series against the Rockies. No home run traveled less than 450 feet and he recorded the longest home run in Major League Baseball this season with a 494-foot shot. Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy was impressed with his performance.

If you make a mistake, there's no ballpark in the American League or National League that will hold him.

Stanton didn't let Sunday's performance drag him down, as he hit a pair of solo home runs on Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Whats more impressive about Stanton's home run ability is that he doesn't always swing the hardest on those pitches. Marlins catcher John Buck has talked with Stanton about why he doesn't swing hard all the time.

I've talked to him before, like, ‘Hey, have you ever thought about just really letting loose?' He has told me, ‘I can't swing as hard as I can because I might hurt something.' He said he very rarely ever 100 percent swings hard. That kind of tells you the special freak he really is.

The Marlins play the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night with a first pitch scheduled for 9:40 p.m.

Marlins Vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Fish Pound Arizona 12-3

The Miami Marlins started their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks off on the right foot, pounding the home team 12-3 Monday night.

The Marlins unleashed an offensive explosion against Joe Saunders and the Arizona bullpen, collecting 20 hits. No fewer than seven Marlins had multi-hits nights. Out of the starters (not including Mark Buehrle) Only Emilio Bonifacio failed to reach that mark, adding a single hit to the effort.

Jose Reyes had a four-hit night including three doubles and two RBI, while Giancarlo Stanton hit two solo home runs as part of his 4-RBI outburst. Carlos Lee tacked on three hits including two RBI as well.

John Buck also left the building for his 10th homer of the year. The catcher also scored three runs and had three singles.

On the pitching side of things, Buehrle held down the fort effectively over seven innings. The southpaw only allowed two runs on six hits while striking out four.
