Fernandez continues his winning ways

With Thursday's victory over the Rays, Jose Fernandez now has seven wins in his first 10 starts this season. The only other Marlins pitchers to win that many games in their first 10 starts in a single season are Dontrelle Willis and Livan Hernandez, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Olney: A look at Stanton's struggles

With help from ESPN Stats & Info's Mark Simon, Buster Olney explores what might be behind Giancarlo Stanton's current slump and if it is related to his season-ending hit by pitch in 2014. Olney's blog (Insider)

Stats & Info

Ichiro's age not showing of late

In his last three games, 42-year-old outfielder Ichiro Suzuki has logged 10 hits. Only one other player over 40 has had more hits in a similar amount of games since 1900, per Elias Sports Bureau.

Stanton needs to commit to process to break slump (1:10)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Giancarlo Stanton, mired in a terrible slump in May, has swung and missed on 40.4 percent of swings on the season. In our database going back to 2009, that's the highest rate for a regular player. Even Mark Reynolds hasn't hit that percentage.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

It's small sample size fun, but with a 3-for-3 game so far tonight, Ichiro Suzuki is 11 for his last 14 and is hitting .414 with a .477 OBP. Not bad for a 42-year-old.

Marlins see small drop in rankings

The bright performances of Christian Yelich and Jose Fernandez have been overshadowed by Giancarlo Stanton's current slump at the plate. Following two series losses last week, Miami drops a spot in our rankings. Week 7 Power Rankings

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Had something cool happen this weekend for the 1st time in the live-ball era: Two different 40-somethings (Ichiro Suzuki & David Ortiz) went 4-for-4 on back-to-back days. The only previous time it had ever even happened in the same month was July 1993 (Dave Winfield on July 9, George Brett on July 26).
