Stanton glad to slug at Coors Field

DENVER -- Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-11 with a double, three homers and five RBIs in his three previous games at Coors Field, with a dinger in each game.

Needless to say, he was looking forward to having a chance to hit there the next four games.

"Everyone knows that the ball flies here," Stanton said. "Anywhere but our park anyways is better, so it's all good."

Stanton hit a mammoth homer to center as part of a 2-for-4 night on Thursday in Miami's 5-3 loss to Colorado.

Manager Ozzie Guillen said of the difference between Coors Field and Marlins Park, "This is the opposite with the field we play, very opposite."
