MIAMI -- A replay reversal loaded the bases with nobody out and the score tied, which meant the Seattle Mariners had to pitch to Giancarlo Stanton for a change. Mark Streit Flyers Jersey . He made them pay. Stanton hit a grand slam to redeem himself for a costly error early in the game, and the Miami Marlins beat the Seattle Mariners 8-4 Friday night. "We tried to stay away from him all night, because he is the one guy in that lineup that can really hurt you," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "We had no choice there." The overturned call set the table for Stanton. Reed Johnson was ruled out at third on a force play following a bunt, but the umpires reviewed the call and determined third baseman Kyle Seager had juggled the ball. "Im a big fan of replay tonight," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "I was fired up when we won the challenge." "I knew it was going to be overturned right away," McClendon said. "That was the right call." The Mariners deployed five infielders for a potential forceout at the plate, and Stanton cleared them all with a towering homer to the left of the home-run sculpture. The 6-foot-6, 242-pound slugger took a pounding from jubilant teammates when he reached home plate, but he said he wasnt hurt. "Nah," he said. "I was throwing punches too." Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs to increase his total to 26, most in the majors. He also had an error in the second inning in right field that scored two unearned runs. Stanton was intentionally walked in consecutive at-bats, so he had to wait until the ninth to make amends for his defensive lapse. "I knew this game was going to be lost or won because of me," he said. "I was like, If I get a chance to hit, Id better take care of it, because of what I did earlier in the game. It was definitely in my mind as a duty." The Mariners lost their fourth game in a row, while the Marlins won for only the second time in the past 11 games. Johnson singled to start the ninth against Yoervis Medina (0-1), and Christian Yelich beat out a sacrifice bunt for his third hit. Marcell Ozunas bunt loaded the bases following the replay review, and Stanton hit a 1-2 slider for his sixth home run. Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his second homer for the Marlins, who won despite two errors that led to three unearned runs. The Marlins Nathan Eovaldi pitched six innings and allowed three runs, one earned. He lowered his ERA in seven interleague starts to 1.70. Steve Cishek (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth. The Mariners, beginning their first series in Miami since 2005 and their second ever, squandered repeated scoring chances. They went 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Abraham Almonte had a double and a triple and scored twice, but slumping Robinson Cano went 1 for 5 and is 4 for 22 on the Mariners trip. The Mariners patchwork rotation again failed to go deep into a game. Chris Young lasted only three innings while giving up seven hits and four runs. "I just never got in a rhythm," Young said. "I never felt comfortable. I wanted to go deep in the game, and I need to pitch better to do so." The Marlins overcame some bad baserunning, a problem since the season started. Yelich was an easy out trying to score from second on a two-out infield hit and Saltalamacchia was picked off first. The Marlins fielding was no better. They have allowed 14 unearned runs this season, and they came into the game tied for the most in the majors. "Weve been a little sloppy in areas," Redmond said. NOTES: Seattle OF James Jones made his big league debut when he came off the bench in the seventh inning, and he singled in the eighth. ... Yelich had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. ... Miamis Casey McGehee improved to 8 for 15 (.533) with runners in scoring position. ... Eovaldi needed 13 pitches to retire Hart in the first inning. ... Redmond, a Seattle native, grew up a Mariners fan and said he probably attended their home opener 15 years in a row. ... LHP Roenis Elias (1-1, 2.16), who earned his first major league win in his most recent outing, is scheduled to start Saturday for Seattle against Henderson Alvarez (0-2, 4.30). Alvarez turned 24 Friday. Eric Lindros Jersey .The team had a meeting prior to facing Russia at the world junior hockey championship and got the effort theyve been looking for by defeating the Russians 4-1 to advance to the quarter-finals. Philadelphia Flyers T-shirts . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season. http://www.nhlflyersproauthentic.com/dale-weise-hockey-jersey/ . -- Sami Salo joked that as the shootout went on and on, one thing went through his mind: "Youve got to tie up your skates.(SportsNetwork.com) - The struggling Los Angeles Kings will try to pick up just their second win in seven games when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs in Mondays battle at Staples Center. The Kings have not been playing like defending Stanley Cup champions during what has been a difficult start to the 2014-15 season and the club is just 1-2-3 over its last six games. That includes an 0-1-2 start to a seven-game homestand which has dropped Los Angeles record as the host to 14-5-4. L.A. lost a 5-4 shootout decision Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets, who moved one point ahead of the Kings for the first of two wild card spots in the Western Conference. Winnipeg jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening seven minutes of the first period, but the Kings cut the deficit to one by the end of the opening stanza. L.A. grabbed a 4-3 lead with third-period goals from Marian Gaborik and Kyle Clifford, but Zach Bogosian would score with 5:56 remaining in regulation to eventually send the game to overtime. Bryan Little then scored the lone shootout goal to award the extra point to the Jets. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick allowed Winnipeg to score three times on its first three shots of the game, but he rebounded to stop 21-of-22 shots the rest of the way. Quick also made an incredible sprawling save, falling backward with his left hand stopping a shot from Mathieu Perreault in the second round of the shootout. However, Little beat the Kings netminder when he scored the only goal of the shootout in the fourth round. Littles wrist shot found the right side of the net before Kings forward Mike Richards missed the net on his attempt to extend the shootout. Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams joined Clifford and Gaborik as the goal- scorers for L.A., which went 2-for-6 on the power play. Everyone individually has to step up, myself included, Kings defenseman Alec Martinez said. We all have to take a little more ownership in our game, and play Kings hockey. Im confident this team will be successful if we do that. If we keep on digging ourselves in a hole in the first period like weve been doing, and giving up as many goals as we have been, its going to be pretty difficult on us. Kings forward Tanner Pearson leeft the game late in the second period with a lower body injury after he was driven into the boards by Jets defenseman Jay Harrison. Travis Konecny Flyers Jersey. Pearson, who has 12 goals and four assists in 42 games this season, suffered a fractured fibula and is out indefinitely. Fellow forward Tyler Toffoli also will miss a second straight game with mononucleosis. Quick is expected to start tonight for the Kings. He is 2-2-1 with a 2.74 goals against average in five career games against the Maple Leafs. Former L.A. netminder Jonathan Bernier earned a victory with just 18 saves on Friday to help Toronto halt a three-game skid with a 5-2 win over visiting Columbus. It was just the third win in the last 11 games for the Leafs, who are 1-1-0 since firing head coach Randy Carlyle and replacing him on an interim basis with Peter Horachek. James van Riemsdyk had two goals and an assist to help the Maple Leafs down the Blue Jackets. Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak and Daniel Winnik each registered a goal and an assist for the Maple Leafs. I thought there was a clear focus yesterday and clear focus this morning. I felt it, Horachek said. Kessel played in his 406th consecutive game, the second-longest games played streak in Maple Leafs history. Tim Horton owns the record at 486. Toronto, which is three points out of a playoff spot in the East, is hoping Fridays win can give the club confidence as it begins a road-heavy part of the schedule. Beginning with tonights tilt in the City of Angels, the Maple Leafs are playing four straight and nine of its next 11 games on the road. The Leafs are 15-9-0 at Air Canada Centre this season compared to a 7-8-3 mark on the road. The swing will continue Wednesday in Anaheim. Bernier is 0-1-0 with a 3.83 GAA in his career against the Kings and its uncertain if he will get the call against his former club tonight. Backup James Reimer boasts a lifetime 3-0-1 record and 1.83 GAA versus L.A. Reimer earned the win when Toronto notched a 4-3 shootout win over a visiting L.A. team on Dec. 14. It was the second straight win over L.A. for the Maple Leafs, who are 3-1-1 in the last five matchups in this series. Toronto has claimed the past three encounters at Staples Center.
