Fun with Brandon Crawford’s Seven-Hit Game

by Bill Chuck on August 9, 2016

Brandon Crawford is now one of five players in baseball history to have at least seven hits in a game. Last night, Crawford lined a single to center in the 14th to drive in Brandon Belt that gave the Giants an 8-7 victory over the Marlins and tied the NL single-game record with his seventh hit. Crawford had five singles, a double and a triple.
