The second pitch in Game 1 of the doubleheader, he gave up a solo home run, thus ending the string of no earned runs allowed, and he went on to give up two earned runs to end his nine-game streak, tied for the third-longest such streak since the earned run became official in 1913.

Left-hander Sammy Long struck out seven over four-plus innings in his Major League debut on Wednesday.

June 8: Giants 9, Rangers 4 -- Crawford stands alone
In his 2-HR game, Brandon Crawford made his 1,326th career appearance at shortstop for the Giants, surpassing Hall of Famer Travis Jackson for the most in the franchise's 138-year history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
