SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants scoring slump reached a record low Friday when shortstop Brandon Crawford lined into a triple play with the bases loaded in the eighth inning.Things didnt get much better in the ninth when Eduardo Nunez, making his Giants debut, struck out swinging to end the game with runners on second and third.Thats the way things are going for manager Bruce Bochys ballclub, which has lost 11 of 13 since the All-Star break.Thats the quickest Ive seen a bases loaded, nobody-out rally end on one pitch, Bochy said. It s a tough break for us. Were just having a hard time getting runners in.Thats an understatement.The Giants have gone 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position in the two losses against the Nationals and are hitting just .147 (16 for 109) in those situations since the All-Star break.The triple play was the first by the Nationals since the franchise moved to Washington in 2005. Its also the first 3-3-5 triple play in major league history according to Sabr.org.We were just trying to figure out through positive thoughts how we were going to get out of it, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said.The Giants trailed going into the eighth then loaded the bases with two walks sandwiched around a single. Crawford then lined an 0-1 pitch from Sammy Solis to first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who had entered the game moments earlier as a defensive replacement.Zimmerman quickly stepped on first base for the second out then threw to third baseman Anthony Rendon to catch Denard Span and complete the triple play.That about sums it up right there, losing pitcher Jeff Samardzija said. It wasnt like it was a ground ball to third base. He hit it on the screws and we saw what happened after that. Thats just where were at right now.Samardzija (9-7) labored through another rough outing. He allowed four runs over six innings with two walks and two strikeouts.Four players had two hits apiece for the Giants. Gregor Blanco drove in the only run for San Francisco with an RBI single in the second.Max Scherzer (11-6) had lost four of his five career starts against the Giants and a no-decision in Game 4 of the 2012 World Series before holding San Francisco to one run over seven innings.The four-time All-Star retired 14 of the final 16 batters he faced and finished with six strikeouts and two walks.FAN CHARGES FIELDThe game was interrupted in the top of the seventh inning when a fan ran onto the field. The man avoided security guards for a few moments then dropped to one knee near Giants SS Crawford before being tackled and escorted away.TRAINER S ROOMNationals: Backup C Jose Lobaton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow tendinitis.

Pedro Severino was called up from Triple-A Syracuse.Giants: Nunez, obtained a day earlier in a trade from Minnesota, was added to the 25-man roster and was in uniform. To make room, OF Jarrett Parker was optioned down to Triple-A Sacramento. ... 3B Matt Duffy (left Achilles strain) took infield and ran the bases before the game in anticipation of beginning a rehab assignment.UP NEXTNationals: RHP Reynaldo Lopez (0-1) will be called up from Syracuse to face San Francisco on Saturday.

CHICAGO -- The Cubs made All-Star history by becoming just the second team ever to have its entire infield start an All-Star Game.Anthony Rizzo (first base), Ben Zobrist (second base), Addison Russell (shortstop) and Kris Bryant (third base) were elected to start next Tuesdays game in San Diego for the National League, becoming just the second foursome to accomplish that feat and first since the 1963 St. Louis Cardinals.Organizationally, it speaks to whats been done here the last several years, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. I take zero credit for that. Its great scouting and development on the part of the Cubs.Maddon vowed to be watching the game as the four infielders will be joined in San Diego by outfielder Dexter Fowler, provided hes healthy enough, as hes on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. Also going from the Cubs are pitchers Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester. Lester was picked by NL manager Terry Collins, while Arrieta was chosen by his peers and is a candidate to start the game.Ive been through a lot, Arrieta, a first-time All-Star, said. A lot of hard work started to pay off and my career has started to move in a positive direction over the past couple years. Its a byproduct of the hard work.While Rizzo was the overall votes leader in the NL, it is Bryant who leads the National League with 25 home runs, while Russell has 11 after hitting three over his past two games.Its an honor, and to have a lot of my teammates there with me will make it even more fun, Bryant said. Just having your teammates and friends there will make it more special. The nerves probably wont be there as much as last year. You just look around and its a normal game.Zobrist had the narrowest margin of selection among the Cubs players, garnering only 88 more votes than runner-up?Daniel Murphy of the Nationals, who still made the All-Star roster.The Cubs shot out to the best record in baseball, going 25-6 before their pace slowed recently. In many years, it has been a struggle to find one All-Star-worthy player from the much-maligned organization, but since team president Theo Epstein came aboard in 2011, the Cubs have rebuilt their farm system and are reaping the rewards. On Monday, they were the first team this season to start nine players who were 26 years old or younger.The start to the season is the reason fans have noticed [us], but I think the assembly of players we have in here is an All-Star-caliber assembly, said Zobrist, now a two-time All-Star.While the Cubs dominate the NL roster, the Boston Red Sox placed an AL-best six players on the team, the most they have sent to an All-Star Game since also sending six to the 2011 game.Bostons delegation represents aa cross-section of young and old, perennial All-Stars and surprising selections.ddddddddddddShortstop Xander Bogaerts and outfielders Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts -- all of whom were voted by fans to start in their first All-Star appearances -- are among the best young players in the game. David Ortiz, the 40-year-old designated hitter who leads the majors in OPS and plans to retire at seasons end, will start in his 10th All-Star Game.Pitching has been the Red Soxs biggest deficiency, yet knuckleballer Steven Wright (2.42 ERA in 16 starts) was selected by AL manager Ned Yost and closer Craig Kimbrel (2.53 ERA, 17 saves) was chosen in player balloting. Wright is an unlikely All-Star, having secured a spot in the starting rotation only after lefty Eduardo Rodriguez injured his knee in spring training. Kimbrel has been an All-Star in five of his six full big league seasons.The reigning World Series champion Kansas City Royals had four players selected to the team, led by catcher Salvador Perez, who was the ALs top vote-getter. He will be joined by teammates Eric Hosmer (first base) and relievers Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera.While the NL infield is making history by all being from one team, the AL infield (and catcher Perez) is making its own mark in the All-Star Game record book.The ALs infield of Hosmer, Jose Altuve (Astros, 2B), Manny Machado (Orioles, 3B) and Bogaerts, with Perez at catcher, marks the first time an All-Star team has ever selected a starting infield and catcher who are all 26 years old or younger.The Red Sox could tie the Cubs with seven total All-Stars if second baseman Dustin Pedroia wins the ALs final man vote. Pedroia will be up against Detroits Ian Kinsler, Tampa Bays Evan Longoria, Torontos Michael Saunders and Houstons George Springer for the final spot, which is voted on by fans.The National Leagues final five is a battle between San Franciscos Brandon Belt, Milwaukees Ryan Braun, Arizonas Jake Lamb, Pittsburghs Starling Marte and Colorados Trevor Story.If Belt wins the fan vote, hed be the fourth member of the Giants to make the All-Star team. Despite entering Tuesday night with a major league-best 53 wins, San Francisco has just three All-Star selections in catcher Buster Posey and pitchers Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto.In an interesting quirk of the rosters, the NL team features nine starting pitchers among its 14 total hurlers, while the AL squad has just five starters among its complement of pitchers.Information from ESPNs Jesse Rogers and Scott Lauber contributed to this report.
