    Giants' Brandon Crawford, Joe Panik commit rare errors in same game

    Not since Joe Panik's rookie season had he and Brandon Crawford committed errors in the same game.

    But their combined run of excellence came to an end in the Giants' 5-4 loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee on Saturday.

    Panik's error came in the bottom of the fifth inning and led to the Brewers tying the game 1-1.

    Crawford's error proved even more costly as it allowed Ryan Braun to reach base to lead off the bottom of the ninth. The Brewers left field would move to second a walk to rookie Keston Hiura and came around to score the game-winning run on a double by pinch-hitter Ben Gamel.

    "Bad read on my part," Crawford told The San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman after the game. "I got caught in-between."

    The last time Panik and Crawford both committed errors in the same game? August 25, 2014, according to the Giants. Panik was a rookie and Crawford was in his fourth season.

    Since then, Crawford has won three Gold Gloves and Panik has won one.

    But on this night, the duo was anything but golden and it cost the Giants to gain ground in the NL Wild Card standings.
