HOUSTON -- Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said that before Monday's series opener in Houston, he thought about moving hot-hitting right fielder Giancarlo Stanton to the cleanup spot, especially with the success he's had against Astros starter Wandy Rodriguez.

"He's hitting around .500 against [Rodriguez], but I think when you're winning, you try to leave the stuff the way it is, make it easy for everyone," Guillen said.

Stanton was penciled into the sixth spot in the lineup behind left fielder Logan Morrison and second baseman Omar Infante.

Stanton entered Monday riding a current nine-game hitting streak, a team high this season. Morrison is hitting .222 over the same span, with one homer and two RBIs.
