Yet the only topic anyone was talking about was the beaning of Miami Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton, hospitalized after getting hit by a fastball from Mike Fiers. Stanton sustained multiple facial fractures, dental damage and cuts that needed stitches after being struck in a 4-2 loss to the Brewers. Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Stanton, the major league RBI leader and a top candidate for the NL MVP award, likely was done for the season.
