MIAMI (AP) All eyes are on Giancarlo Stanton and he keeps delivering.

"Obviously very dangerous right now," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

Gonzalez sharp as Nats end Angels' run

WASHINGTON (AP) Gio Gonzalez didn't have much time to worry about an infield single ending another no-hit bid. Not with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols due up.

Six innings of two-hit baseball from Gonzalez was more than enough for the Washington Nationals to snap the Los Angeles Angels' winning streak at six with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.
