Unclassic Giants win, 9-6

Well, that was what used to be called a slugfest.

Brandon Crawford is on the team for his glove, not his bat but every now and again delivers a big hit. Tonight, it was a 3-run HR in the sixth. Here's from Chris Haft's story for mlb.com -- 

With Colorado leading, 6-2, Nicasio vanished after walking Blanco and Hector Sanchez to open the sixth. Both advanced on reliever Adam Ottavino's wild pitch. Up came Crawford, who lined Ottavino's 2-0 fastball over the left-field wall.
"We're down by four, so to say I was trying to hit a sacrifice fly wouldn't really be true," Crawford said.
Of Crawford's eight career home runs, two were grand slams and three were three-run homers.
"I'm pretty sure I told you last year, maybe the year before, that I pick the right spots," Crawford jokingly told a reporter.
Singles by pinch-hitter Nick Noonan and Pagan helped load the bases for Hunter Pence, who recorded his 1,000th career hit, a one-out single off Belisle that tied the score.
