Joyless Night at AT&T Park – Thoughts & Prayers With the Crawford Family
Most MLB fans probably glanced and seen that the San Francisco Giants lost last night to the Colorado Rockies. What fans probably don’t know is that it was a very somber night at AT&T Park. Gold Glove shortstop Brandon Crawford was absent from the starting lineup. After Wednesday night’s game, Crawford drove to Los Angeles to be with his wife and family as his sister-in-law Jennifer Pippin suddenly passed away.
Crawford did fly back to San Francisco yesterday in time for the Giants game, but he was running on fumes. Manager Bruce Bochy said Crawford only had about 2 1/2 hours of sleep. Which meant there was no way the Giants would even think about starting him. Bochy was even shocked that Crawford came back for the game.
