Dickerson first ever Giant with five extra-base hits in game


Alex Dickerson had a night in Denver he'll never forget.

The Giants left fielder went 5-for-6 with two doubles, three homers, six RBI, five runs scored and 16 total bases in the Giants' 23-5 demolition of the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night at Coors Field.

In the long, storied history of the Giants, no one had ever done what Dickerson did against the Rockies.

That's right. Not Barry Bonds. Not Willie Mays. Not Willie McCovey. No one that has worn the orange and black has ever had five extra-base hits in a single game.

Dickerson actually had two chances to hit his fourth homer of the game, but he walked in the eighth inning and doubled in the ninth.

Dickerson entered Tuesday's game slashing .221/.299/.395, but after his monster night, he improved his numbers to .261/.337/.543.

Not a bad night for the 30-year-old.
