Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton became the franchise's all-time home run leader with a two-run shot off of New York Mets starter Dillon Gee in the first inning of a contest between the NL East rivals on Thursday.

Stanton's homer was his first of 2015 and the 155th of his career. The 25-year-old, sixth-year star passed Dan Uggla, who hit 154 homers in five seasons with the Marlins.

Stanton, the recipient of a 13-year, $325 million contract during the offseason, has hit a homer in four consecutive games against the Mets. He made his second All-Star team last season, which he finished with a .288/.395/.555 line and 37 home runs. Stanton finished second in the NL MVP voting and might have won if not for missing the final 17 games of the season after being hit in the face with a pitch by Mike Fiers of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Prior to Uggla becoming the Marlins' home run leader, Mike Lowell held the club record with 143 homers from 1999-2005.
