Miami Marlins Giancarlo Stanton Brings Home Run Total To 59

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his 58th and 59th home runs Thursday against the Atlanta Braves, the most since Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds did so in 2001.   Bonds set the all-time home run record with 73 in 2001, whie Sosa hit 64 homers. They are the last players to hit 60 in a season.  The Marlins have three games remaining in the regular season, so Stanton could wind up setting his own personal record for home runs.
