Worth noting

• Giancarlo Stanton was back in the lineup and batting cleanup Friday night after being given the day off Thursday to rest his right knee. Guillen said the Marlins will continue to be cautious about how they handle the All-Star slugger's playing time, but hopes the day of rest helped out.

"Hopefully he carries on from where he left off in New York," Guillen said. "He swung the bat pretty good over there, and now we have to be careful with him, monitor how he's going to play, how we have to play him."
