JUPITER (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Marlins saw something on Wednesday that they had been waiting for since the end of last season.

Giancarlo Stanton homered for the first time since he was beaned last September, part of a three-hit game that helped the Marlins beat the Washington Nationals 5-4.

Stanton doubled in the first inning against Doug Fister, had an RBI single that made it 2-0 in the third and tied the score 3-3 when he homered leading off the sixth against Casey Janssen.

Haren threw 38 of his 58 pitches for strikes on a warm, muggy afternoon that saw the temperature climb into the mid 80s.

“I’m sure I’ll be a little sore tomorrow, but that’s the only way…

JUPITER – Giancarlo Stanton will wait until Thursday for his first at-bat against opposition pitching since being struck in the face by a fastball Sept. 11.

The Marlins play St. Louis on Thursday at Roger Dean Stadium in their first spring exhibition against a major-league team. Today at 1:05, Miami plays Miami, as in the Hurricanes, but Stanton will play in a simulated game on the back fields rather than batting against college pitchers.
