Worth noting

Travis Snider and Russell Martin both had hearings Tuesday via video conference on their appeals of the one-game suspension handed them by MLB for their roles in the on-field fracas with the Brewers. Decisions have not been announced.

• Remarkably, the Giants scored their 11-10 win in 13 innings Monday with 17 of their 20 hits being singles, only the third time since World War II that they've had 20-plus hits with three for extra bases.

Most remarkable? All three have been against the Pirates, the earlier instances on Aug. 4, 1946 (10-1 in the Polo Grounds) and July 25, 1961 (16-7 in Forbes Field).

• The 29 runs the Pirates allowed in the first four games of this homestand -- to Toronto and San Francisco -- were the most they had given up in four consecutive home games since Aug. 13-16, 2012, when the Dodgers totaled 31 in a four-game series.
