While Mike Stanton is known for his prodigous power, his first at-bat in the big leagues resulted in an infield single off the Phillies' Kyle Kendrick.
Facing a full count, Stanton hit a chopper of Kendrick's head and the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Stanton busted down the line.
Known for his 500-foot homers, Stanton was recruited by USC as a wide receiver and cornerback, so he does have speed, which he showed scoring from first on Ronnie Paulino's double.
The Marlins lead 2-0 in the top of the second.
