SAN DIEGO -- Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning and the surprising Miami Marlins earned a rare road win, beating the San Diego Padres 3-1 Thursday night for their fifth straight victory.

Stanton lined an 0-2 pitch from Dale Thayer (2-1) over the right-centre fence after Derek Dietrich reached on a two-out error by second baseman Jedd Gyorko. Stanton leads the NL with 11 home runs and tops the majors with 40 RBIs.

Coming off an 8-1 homestand, the Marlins (20-15) took over sole possession of first place in the NL East for the first time since April 26, 2011. The last time they were five games over .500 was at 31-26 on June 7, 2012, according to STATS.
