Giancarlo Stanton wasn’t supposed to return from a gnarly groin tear until another week or so, but he made a startlingly early return to the Marlins a few weeks ago. Tonight, he hit his first dinger since he came back, and boy oh boy it was a spicy one.

Turns out, he hit it real fast, as he is wont to do.

The Marlins are still facing an uphill battle to get into the playoffs, but at least their most bombastic player is back doing his thing.
