Giancarlo Stanton ripped a walk-off grand slam in Miami, and the Marlins beat the Mariners 8-4 on Friday night.

With the game tied 4-4 and the bases loaded, Stanton bludgeoned a breaking ball from Yoervis Medina and the ball landed eventually, maybe somewhere in Biscayne Bay. The crowd of 21,388 went nuts as Stanton danced home from third, spiked his helmet, and was doused with water by teammates at home plate. There are few things more thrilling in baseball than a monster home run by Bigfoot. The Marlins outfielder is the hottest hitter on the planet and resembling an MVP candidate. In the bottom of the first against Seattle’s Chris Young, Stanton drove in his 22nd RBI with a single up the middle, and his grand slam in the ninth was his sixth home run of the year (tied for first in the league with Pedro Alvarez and Mark Trumbo) to go with his major league league leading 26 RBI.
