MIAMI (AP) Giancarlo Stanton paused in his pursuit of a hallowed home run number, acknowledged he's shooting for 61 and said he finds baseball's statistical history both alluring and tainted.

Stanton's six-game homer streak ended Wednesday, but he singled, stole a base and scored in a four-run first inning to help the Miami Marlins beat the San Francisco Giants 8-1.

While Stanton didn't come close to hitting his 45th homer of the year, he's on pace to finish with 61 and said that number is a goal.
