0: Runs scored in their previous 12 innings at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park before the Giants plated seven runs in the fourth inning.
2: Career grand slams by the Giants’ Angel Pagan, who cleared the bases with his fourth-inning blast off Pirates starter Wildredo Boscan. Pagan’s other slam came in a Mets uniform in 2009.
3: Runs scored by San Francisco’s Gregor Blanco, who reached in all five plate appearances (three hits and two walks).
4: Runs batted in by Pagan and Conor Gillaspie.
4: Hits by Gillaspie, matching his career high.

9: Every Giants starter reached base at least once; all but Cueto had at least one hit.
9: Consecutive Giants batters to reach base to start the seventh inning.

11: Pitches San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford saw in coaxing a bases-loaded walk that scored the Giants’ first run in the seventh.
