Stanton scratched from Friday's lineup with sore left shoulder

Marlins All-Star right fielder Giancarlo Stanton was scratched from Friday night's lineup with a sore left shoulder about an hour before first pitch.

It's the first time this season Stanton hasn't been in the lineup. Stanton, who took batting practice with his teammates, was replaced in right field by Austin Kearns. 

Manager Mike Redmond moved his 4-5-6 hitters -- Placido Polanco, Justin Ruggiano and Greg Dobbs -- up a spot in the batting order and slotted Kearns sixth.
