Brandon Crawford becomes fifth player to record seven hits in a game

Tuesday August 9th, 2016

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford recorded seven hits in eight at bats in a 14-inning, 8–7 win over the Marlins on Monday night, becoming just the fifth player to pick up at least seven hits, and the first since 1975.

Crawford joins Rennie Stennett, Cesar Gutierrez and Rocky Colavito as the only players to have seven hits in a game. Johnny Burnett holds the major-league record with nine in 1932.

Five of Crawford’s hits were singles, one was a double and one was a triple. He finished with two RBIs, the latter of which drove in the game-winning run in the top of the 14th.

The lefthanded hitter entered the game with just five hits in his last 24 at bats.
