Brandon Crawford slugged his 10th home run of the season in the Giants' 4-2 defeat of the Reds on Tuesday. It was a seventh-inning solo shot to right off Reds reliever Heath Hembree. Crawford also singled and scored in the top of the fourth inning, finishing the night 2-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored while improving his overall OPS to .868. Amazingly, the veteran shortstop is the first Giants player to hit 10 home runs across the first 36 games of a season since Barry Bonds in 2007. Pretty good company there.

Joey Votto will have a follow-up X-ray on his left thumb this week. The Reds want to see if Votto's fractured left thumb is healing properly. He reportedly ran the bases and did some light fielding drills without a glove on Tuesday, but his return is still a couple of weeks off, most likely.
