Last Night's Game
It's easy when everyone hits, as Mike Moore will surely attest. The up-and-down lefty was way, way up as he struck out 11 over eight innings and departed with a 7-1 lead. The Giants added five runs in the eighth to get into double digits, but for once the game was settled well before then. Buster Posey and Hunter Pence launched back-to-back home runs in the fifth; Posey's blast was his 1000th career hit. Brandon Crawford hit one of his two (!) triples in that inning, which had opened with back-to-back doubles from Denard Span and Brandon Belt. The finally tally saw Belt 3-for-5 and Crawford 4-for-5, each with two runs scored; Pence totaled three hits, two runs, two RBI; Angel Pagan, Joe Panik and Conor Gillaspie, starting at third, each had two hits including Gillaspie's sixth home run. All told, it was 19 hits with seven starters getting two, and six starters both scoring and driving in runs. Needless to say, we need more days like this!

Congratulations to Brandon Crawford, who in addition to leading the team with 82 RBI, is the only player in the major leagues to reach double figures in doubles, triples, and home runs!
