MIAMI — Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam with none out in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins took advantage of an overturned call on a replay review to beat the Seattle Mariners 8-4 Friday night.

Reed Johnson was called out on a force play following a bunt, but the umpires reviewed the ruling and determined third baseman Kyle Seager had juggled the ball. The Mariners then deployed five infielders, and Stanton cleared them all with a towering homer to the left of the home-run sculpture.

Stanton had five RBIs to increase his total to 26, most in the majors.

The Mariners lost their fourth game in a row, while the Marlins won for only the second time in the past 11 games.
