Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to Rockies.

Crawford cracked a solo homer off Tyler Chatwood in the fifth inning. He would later tack on an RBI double in the ninth. The latter hit came as part of a three-run ninth inning by the Giants, one which gave them a very short-lived 5-3 lead. Nolan Arenado would hit a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the frame to deny the Giants a late comeback victory. For his part, Crawford is now hitting .258/.301/.424 with sixth homers and 32 RBI in 198 at-bats. He has picked up a pair of three-hit games in his last three contests.

Brandon Crawford went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and a double in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

The Rockies took a 9-1 lead into the seventh inning before the Giants started to make things interesting. They posted two runs in that seventh before putting up a five-spot in the eighth to make the score 9-8, with Crawford's two-out, three-run homer the big blow. They would actually manage to tie the game up in the ninth inning before the Rockies walked off an RBI single by Raimel Tapia in the bottom of the frame. Crawford entered action on Thursday stuck in a 3-for-24 cold spell, but snapped that, at least for one night.
