Rare feat: Crawford, Stennett meet in Miami after 7-hit game

Crawford visited before the game with Rennie Stennett about the NL record they share. He's got a hit in each of his last four games, driving in six runs with two home runs over that span - and one really impressive broken-bat RBI.

The under is also 22-8 in his last 30 games behind home plate, is 5-2 in his last seven games behind home plate when he's calling Giants games, and is 7-3 in his 10 games behind home plate on a Wednesday.

San Francisco Giants legend, and current Miami Marlins hitting coach, Barry Bonds was ejected from Wednesday afternoon's Giants-Marlins game at Marlins Park for arguing about the strike zone.

"He didn't think it was a strike", Johnson said. Bonds wanted to make known his disagreement and displeasure with Blaser's called third strike - a pitch so far off the plate it ran parallel with the inside chalk of the opposite batters' box - on Chris Johnson, who was batting with two on and two out in a tight game.


"We came up with a plan", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. The team will be responsible for the remainder of the $62.5 million, six-year contract he signed with the Dodgers in early 2015. Jeff Samardzija (10-8) pitched 5 2/3 innings to best his former Notre Dame teammate, David Phelps, and four Giants relievers completed a five-hitter.

Santiago Casilla earned his 26th save, working around a two-out double by Ichiro Suzuki.

After striking out Trevor Blanco and Samardzija to start the frame, Phelps gave up a single to Eduardo Nunez, who then reached second on his errant pickoff throw to first.

Suzuki singled and doubled to increase his career hit total to 3,002. Left fielder Angel Pagan alertly scooped the ball and fired to second base, catching Dietrich trying to stretch his hit. Giants LHP Josh Osich (strained left forearm) had his first rehab assignment on Tuesday at Double-A Richmond, getting just one out while allowing three walks and a run.


Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth, even with the Dodgers down 3-2, and loaded the bases.

Elvis Araujo (2-1) pitched one inning for the victory. Seager went down was attended to by a trainer, but stayed in the game.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was asked about his heart rate when he saw Seager go down. "That's as quick as I've come out of the dugout in a long time".

"I've never seen anything like that", Koehler said. They still only won with one run, after having been shut out in two of the previous three games. Scott Kazmir (9-6) was the loser.


They took two of three from the Marlins to end a challenging 4-5 road trip down the Eastern Seaboard in which Hunter Pence received a black eye, Buster Posey scraped up his face and Bochy had a heart scare that sent him to the hospital.
