MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – As the Marlins continue to sit at the bottom of the NL East standings, the team got a big shot in the arm last night from Mike Stanton’s walk-off home run in the tenth inning against the division leading Philadelphia Phillies.

The victory Wednesday night was the Marlins’ first win against the Phillies since May 10.

For Stanton, it was his 17th home run of the season, which leads the Marlins. Stanton is second on the team with 47 RBI’s, and runs with 42. It was also his first home run since June 21.

Stanton has been battling an eye problem that gets more blurry during night games. According to the Palm Beach Post, Stanton received eye drops Wednesday night to help with his eye problem. Stanton said he will not get treatment for the eye until Monday.

The Marlins also had Mike Cameron pinch-hit in the eighth inning, but popped out. Cameron, 38, is slated to play for the Marlins after being kicked to the curb by the Boston Red Sox. Cameron will start in center field, which shows how far the Marlins have fallen in 2011.
