Giancarlo Stanton put an exclamation point on taking the National League home run lead Monday, hitting a 441-foot homer in the first inning before blasting another home run in the fifth.

Both home runs came off Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Jerad Eickhoff as the first one was sent near the scoreboard he broke in 2012 with a homer off Jamie Moyer.

Stanton’s 28 home runs on the season trail just New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge for the major league lead.
