Crawford hit the solo shot off reliever Dale Thayer -- this time with no gum-throwing or bench-clearing discussions -- in the eighth inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats. Crawford has already set a career high in homers and we're not yet to August, and it's only a matter of time before he sets new single-season highs in most every category. The 28-year-old is hitting .266/.333/.477 on the year.

The solo blast off Nats starter Jordan Zimmerman produced the extent of the Giants offense on the night, and was Crawford's lone hit in four at-bats. He has already bettered his previous career best in home runs (10 in 2015) and is well on his way to a career year in his age-28 season. The slick-fielding shortstop is slashing .265/.339/.473 with the aforementioned 12 long balls and 49 RBI.

The shortstop has been much more productive than expected coming into the season, batting .297/.369/.511 with eight home runs and 36 RBI. He's certainly worthy of All-Star consideration at the moment.
