Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Marlins' 8-5 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

It's been tough sledding for Stanton in the early going, as the two hits raised his average to .200 on the young season. A shoulder contusion is partly to blame for his struggles -- he missed a week of games due to the injury, and he has yet to hit a home run this season. Between the injury and his supporting cast, it's tough not to get discouraged about Stanton's outlook. Even so, the power is there and when it returns, he will get his share of home runs.
