Yelich, Stanton homer in 8th as Marlins beat Mets 5-4

MIAMI (AP) - Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton hit back-to-back homers to cap a three-run eighth inning, and the Miami Marlins rallied past the New York Mets 5-4 Saturday night.
 
Justin Bour and Marcell Ozuna hit consecutive homers for Miami in the second inning.
 
The long balls spoiled a fine outing by the Mets' Jacob deGrom, who tied a career high with 13 strikeouts in seven innings and allowed two runs, both homers. He remained without a decision in three starts despite an ERA of 1.89.
 
Miami trailed 4-2 when Miguel Rojas walked with two out in the eighth against Fernando Salas (0-1). Yelich followed with his second homer of the year on a 3-1 pitch, and Stanton's homer into the center field hedge came on a 3-2 delivery.
 
Asdrubal Cabrera hit a solo homer in the eighth against Junichi Tazawa (1-0) to put the Mets ahead 4-2.
