Recap: LA Angels vs. Miami

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Giancarlo Stanton belted a three-run homer and the Marlins supported Jarred Cosart with plenty of offense to beat the Angels, 7-1, in the opener of a three-game set.

Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles for Miami, which snapped a two-game skid. Donovan Solano and Reed Johnson each had a pair of hits and scored twice.

Miami, which evened its record (65-65), is three games behind San Francisco for the second wild card spot.

"We bounced back after a tough series in Colorado," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Cosart pitched a great game against a great team. We put together some good at-bats and scored some runs. We pitched and got big hits tonight."

Cosart (2-1), in his fourth start since being traded from Houston, gave up a run on seven hits in 7 2/3 innings.

"From the beginning I wanted to attack the strike zone. I got more comfortable as the game went on," Cosart said. "I got a huge lead early and that made it easier on me."

Wade LeBlanc (0-1), a left-hander who played for the Marlins during the 2012 and 2013 seasons, made his first major league start of 2014, but was hammered for seven hits and six runs in 3 1/3 innings.

"Wade started out okay, then he got away from the things he does well," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Wade never got comfortable and it ended up costing him."

The Angels fell into a tie with Oakland for first in the AL West. The Athletics won at Houston Monday night.

Kole Calhoun doubled in the only run for the Angels in the eighth inning.

Before that, the Marlins built their lead by scoring three times in the third and four more in the fourth. Yelich singled to center to plate Solano in the third. Stanton was walked to fill the bases later in the frame and Marcell Ozuna made it 2-0 with a sacrifice fly to right. Casey McGehee singled in Yelich.

Solano doubled and Johnson singled ahead of Yelich's RBI base hit to left in the fourth. Stanton homered for the National League-leading 33rd time, a blast to left-center off Cory Rasmus.

Game Notes

Angels shortstop Erick Aybar went 3-for-4 and extended his hitting streak to 10 games ... The Marlins went 5-for-13 with men in scoring position ... The Angels lost for the third time in four games.

Game planning for a season is much easier when there is a constant under center. However, predicting injuries is never a factor.
