As expected, the Marlins have been terrible this season. But two players have saved them from outright, Astros-like embarrassment: Jose Fernandez and Giancarlo Stanton.

The homer, Stanton’s longest of the season, traveled 463 feet — 25 feet further than the infamous “break-the-scoreboard” blast the slugger launched in May 2012.
