Brandon Crawford, Rennie Stennett meet in Miami after 7-hit game

MIAMI -- The National League's only living seven-hit men have met at Marlins Park.

Rennie Stennett visited the ballpark Wednesday so he could congratulate San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford, who had seven hits in Monday's 14-inning victory at Miami.

The seven-hit game was the first since Stennett went 7 for 7 for the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field in 1975.

Crawford and Stennett shook hands and posed for photos on the field before the final game of the Giants-Marlins series.

Stennett, 65, was a .274 hitter in 11 seasons with the Pirates and Giants. He lives in South Florida.

The only other NL player with a seven-hit game was Baltimore's Wilbert Robinson in 1892. The major league record is nine hits by Cleveland's Johnny Burnett in 1932.
