WASHINGTON (AP) - Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 15th home run and also doubled and singled in his latest power performance at Nationals Park, leading the Miami Marlins over Washington 3-2 Monday.

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

Stanton is hitting .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.

The Marlins improved to 7-17 on the road; they're 20-8 at home.

Nathan Eovaldi (4-2) pitched 6 1-3 innings, giving up two runs and three hits. Steve Cishek worked the ninth for his 11th save.

Adam LaRoche homered for the Nationals, who had won 12 of their last 13 against Miami at home. Tanner Roark (3-3) went seven innings.
