Rob Foldy/Miami Marlins via Getty Images(MIAMI) -- Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton was in a slump going into a series against the Mets. In his previous 11 games, Stanton went 7-for-40 with just one home run. Stanton had 18 home runs in August but only three in September ahead of Monday's game.

Stanton's dream of hitting 60 home runs this season seemed to be slipping away. Then he hit number 55 and he is one step closer to having the dream become reality. It was a 114 mph blast that traveled 455 feet and left the park in 4.5 seconds.

In 2001, Barry Bonds set the single-season record with 73 home runs. The same year, Sammy Sosa hit 64, Luis Gonzalez hit 57, and Alex Rodriguez hit 52.

He has 12 games to hit five home runs and reach 60, or six to tie Roger Maris at 61, or seven to reach 62, a figure topped only by Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sosa.

Stanton has homered every 10.0 at-bats this season, so given 50 at-bats the next 12 games, he would project to 60. Working in his favor is the Marlins' remaining schedule: two more games against the Mets, a six-game road trip to Arizona and Coloradoand finally four at home against the Braves.

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Baltimore Orioles minor league pitcher Miguel Gonzalez died from injuries sustained in a car crash in his native Dominican Republic.

"Our organization is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Miguel Gonzalez," executive vice president

Dan Duquette said in a statement. "Miguel was beloved by his teammates and coaches in the Dominican Republic. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during this very difficult time."

Orioles academy director Felipe Alou Jr. told our partners at ESPN that Gonzalez was returning home after visiting his girlfriend when he smashed his car against a truck that lost control.

Three persons were in the car with Gonzalez. All of them were uninjured, according to Alou.

The funeral will be on Tuesday at his parent's house located in the city of Arroyo Hondo.

Gonzalez, an undrafted free agent, had spent the last three seasons in the Dominican Summer League, appearing in 38 games (13 starts) and posting a 7.65 ERA.

Ralph Freso/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The Washington Redskins have placed safety Su'a Cravens on the reserve/left squad list, meaning he will not return to the team this season.

— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) September 18, 2017

 

Earlier this month, our partners at ESPN reported that Cravens had told some within the organization that he was planning to retire, but a meeting with the Redskins' coaches and executives has changed his mind for the time being.

The 22-year-old Cravens then was put on the team's exempt/left squad list before Week 1, meaning he had to sit out for a month.

 Redskins coach Jay Gruden had said Cravens needed time to work out personal issues, but that he would welcome him if he wanted to return.

"Some people, football is not for them," Gruden said. "But I know he has a strong passion for the game and wants to play. But there are some things in his life that he needs to keep private -- that we will keep private -- that he has to take care of."

Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(HOUSTON) -- The Cleveland Indians have been stealing a lot of the American League spotlight lately, but the Houston Astros have been one of the most consistent teams across the MLB all season long. That consistency paid off on Sunday, when Houston's 7-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners clinched them the American League West division.

Recently acquired starter Justin Verlander had a great home debut, throwing seven innings of one run ball while striking out ten and walking just one. He was helped along by home runs from four different Astros. Derek Fisher's two-run blast in the fifth game Houston a 2-1 lead, and Marwin Gonzalez added to that lead later in the inning with a two-run homer of his own.

In the seventh, George Springer hit a solo homer and Carlos Correa added a two-run shot to complete the scoring for the Astros.

The Astros still have something to play for, as they only trail the Indians by one and a half games for best record in the American League.

 Joe Faraoni/ESPN Images(LAS VEGAS) -- The battle for the unified middleweight title Saturday night between champion Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez lived up to the hype. All that it needed was a result. The judges scored the fight 118-110 Alvarez, 115-113 Golovkin and 114-114, ending the fight in a draw allowing Golovkin to retain his belts.

The most shocking of all of these scores was 118-110 by judge Adalaide Byrd, who only gave rounds four and seven to Golovkin. Golovkin landed more punches in ten of the 12 rounds, but Alvarez had a higher percentage of punches landed with almost 200 less punches thrown.

The result was Golovkin's first that did not result in a win (37-0-1, 33 KOs) and was his 19th consecutive middleweight title defense, putting him one away from the record of 20 set by Bernard Hopkins.

Both fighters felt they won the fight, and indicated they would like a rematch to determine a winner.

Phil Ellsworth/ESPN Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Sam Bradford put on a show on Monday Night Footbal against the New Orleans Saints, but his status for Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers is in question.

Sources told ESPN that Bradford underwent an MRI Tuesday on his left knee. The scan did not reveal any specific damage, but the Vikings did promote practice squad quarterback Kyle Sloter to the 53-man roster Saturday.

Bradford is listed as questionable, and Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said on Friday he expects Bradford to play in the game. If he's unable to go, backup quarterback Case Keenum will most likely get the nod.
