Manager Mike Redmond was ready to take the bat out of Giancarlo Stanton's hands with the game on the line in the ninth inning Friday. Instant replay put Stanton back in position to win the game, and he did just that in grand fashion.

With the bases loaded and no out, Stanton took anything but a defensive swing at Yoervis Medina's 1-2 pitch and deposited it over the left-center field wall for his second-career walk-off grand slam. The 8-4 win over the Seattle Mariners came in spite of two Marlins errors that led to three unearned runs, including one that tied the game in the seventh.

Had the ninth transpired as Redmond envisioned it, Stanton would have been on first base with the bases loaded and one out for Garrett Jones. With two on and no out, Redmond had Marcell Ozuna bunt, fully aware that if successful the Mariners would intentionally walk Stanton for the third time in the game.

"I was trying to get a couple of guys in scoring position," Redmond said. "The way we've been going, if [Ozuna] swings he might have grounded into a double play or who knows. I still take my chances with the bases loaded and one out, and the four-hole hitter up at the plate.

Garrett Jones never made to the plate thanks to an overturned call at third. Medina fielded Ozuna's bunt and appeared to throw out Reed Johnson at third for the 1-5, fielder's choice. Monitoring the video, administrative coach Pat Shine alerted the dugout third baseman Kyle Seager bobbled the ball on the transfer.

Umpires reviewed it and the call was overturned, loading the bases for Stanton.

"I was just like, 'If I get a chance to hit I better take care of it,'" said Stanton, whose second-inning error led to two unearned runs. "We wouldn't be in that situation if I didn't make that [error]. To put it in play is number one and something good will happen."
