Crawford went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in Monday's 4-1 loss to Atlanta. San Francisco was held to two hits Monday, both off the bat of Brandon Crawford. The former All-Star shortstop has three homers and an unsightly .591 OPS in 173 plate appearances.
Crawford is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Crawford has started 28 of the last 29 games but will head to the bench Sunday as he has an ugly .186/.266/.289 slash line in that span. Donovan Solano will start at shortstop and bat second in Sunday's series finale.
Crawford went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Crawford took Ryan Tepera deep in the sixth inning to break a 3-3 tie, providing what turned out to be the game-winning run. He now has two home runs on the season, but is still slugging just .278 across 160 plate appearances. His strikeout rate is up five percentage points from a year ago.
Crawford went 2-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's 14-4 win over Colorado. The Giants' current road trip to Cincinnati and now Colorado has been a blessing for Crawford, who is currently batting .389 (7-for-18) with a homer, five RBI and five runs through the first five games of this seven-game road set. The shortstop's overall numbers remain poor (.221/.296/.270), but we have seen him go on extended hot streaks (i.e. the first half last season).
Crawford hit a two-run, pinch-hit homer in the ninth inning of Sunday's 6-5 win over the Reds. Crawford got the day off but still made an impact, picking a great time to hit his first homer of 2019. Still, he owns an ugly .211 average with five RBI and 32 strikeouts on the year.
