Giants’ Bochy seeks runs, meets with hitters

Manager Bruce Bochy met with some of his key hitters before Saturday’s game, including Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford, Brandon Belt and Joe Panik. After Friday night’s interleague loss to the Orioles in which the Giants got five hits, Bochy said, “It’s going to take all of them to start clicking here, keep the line moving and get these runners in.” The Giants have scored the majors’ fewest runs in August, 34. Since the All-Star break, the Giants have stranded a league-high 200 runners. Giants lineup: CF Span, LF Pagan, 1B Belt, C Posey, SS Crawford, RF Pence, 3B Nunez, 2B...

1st home game for new Giants Moore and Smith The Giants had been on the road since the Aug. 1 trade deadline, so pitchers Matt Moore and Will Smith put on their new home uniforms for the first time Friday. Moore, acquired from the Rays, will make his AT&T Park debut Monday when he starts against the Pirates. Smith, a former Brewer, has experience at the downtown yard and is looking to improve his ERA there, having surrendered eight runs in 31/3 innings. “That whole row right there gave me nightmares,” Smith said, pointing across the clubhouse where Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and...

Giants’ Brandon Crawford meets Rennie Stennett, the last seven-hit man

MIAMI - Rennie Stennett, the one-time Pirate and Giant, embraced his fame after getting seven hits in a 1975 game at Wrigley Field. No major-leaguer matched the feat until Brandon Crawford on Monday night at Marlins Park, geographically fortuitous because Stennett lives nearby. On Wednesday morning, Stennett visited Crawford to congratulate him and share a conversation that they and only four other players in history could have. Stennett's feat was remarkable because he had seven hits in a nine-inning game, a 22-0 Pirates rout at Wrigley Field. Whenever a hitter had five or six hits in a...

Brandon Crawford had the best 7 hit game ever

And now to back that up with incredibly biased analysis Brandon Crawford set a Giants record by getting 7 hits in one game, and before we go on to the rest of the article, let me just say: Good heavens, that’s a lot of hits. That is a much larger number of hits than a person could reasonably expect in a game. Congratulations to Brandon Crawford for getting so many hits because, again, gosh, that’s a lot of hits. Prior to Brandon Crawford, there had been five 7-hit games in the history of Major League Baseball, and as a biased Giants fan with a platform to talk to other biased Giants...
