MIAMI (AP) - Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is in the starting lineup for Wednesday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after missing the last seven games with right side soreness.

Stanton is fifth in the batting order for the first time all season. Marcell Ozuna is batting in Stanton’s usual cleanup spot.

Ozuna and Stanton collided in the outfield during a May 15 win over Washington.

Stanton is hitting .214 with a team-high 12 home runs and 26 RBIs in 43 games.
