Marlins have monster inning in Arizona

     PHOENIX -- The Marlins messed up scorecards in tonight's fourth inning at Chase Field, sending a dozen men to the plate in a nine-run outburst that featured a three-run bomb by Giancarlo Stanton and a total of 10 hits to equal a club mark.

     Here's the brief rundown on the new marks:

     -- The 10 hits matched the team record for one inning. The Marlins also produced 10 hits -- as well as nine runs -- in the third inning at Pittsburgh on Sept. 9, 2011.

     -- The nine runs fell one run shy of the team's one-inning mark. The Marlins scored 10 runs here at Chase Field in the eighth inning on July 9, 2009.

     Diamondbacks starter Joe Saunders, who shut out Miami at Marlins Park in April, was on the hill during Monday's bloodbath.
