Giancarlo Stanton once again put on quite a show at Nationals Park.

His latest effort keyed a rare Marlins win at Washington.

Stanton hit his NL-leading 15th home run and also doubled and singled in another power performance in the nation's capital, leading Miami over Washington 3-2 Monday.

Stanton doubled and scored in the first inning, then launched a long two-run homer in third.

 don't know," Stanton said. "There's certain things you can't explain like that. It's just good it worked out today. But I understand that I do a little bit better here, but you can't really attest it to anything."

Stanton is batting .333 (43 for 129) with 14 home runs and 27 RBIs in Washington since his career began in 2010. He has homered at Nationals Park more than any other visiting player during that time.

"We need to come out with some momentum and we were able to do that today," manager Mike Redmond said. "(Stanton) crushed that (homer) and had some great at-bats, and that's what it's going to take for us to win games on the road."
