Giants continue hot play, thump Rockies

You could be forgiven for writing off the Giants earlier this season, when they entered June with a 22-34 record. But lately the Giants have played well — to the tune of a tie for the majors’ eighth-best record over their past 30 games.

The Giants continued to play well on Monday, routing the Rockies in the day portion of a doubleheader by a 19-2 final. The Giants recorded 21 hits, including four home runs, and received a quality start from Jeff Samardzija in the process.

The most notable contributor on the afternoon, however, was Brandon Crawford. He went 5 for 6 with two home runs and eight runs batted in. For those wondering, this was the 16th five-hit game of the season. It was the third in which the batter also homered twice. The eight RBI, by the way, ties Josh Phegley for the most by a batter in a game this year.

Crawford entered the day with six home runs and 30 RBI on the season.

The Giants, meanwhile, are now four games back in the wild card race (albeit behind six other teams).
