PANIK’S FIVE HITS… IF Joe Panik became the sixth Giants rookie to record at least five hits in a game last night, going a perfect 5-for-5 (all singles)…however, he did not score a run, record a RBI and had no extra base hits…at 23 years old, he became the youngest player with that line in any game since Hank Aaron in 1958 (Aug. 27, 1958 at SF) (Elias)…no player had ever recorded at least five hits without scoring or driving in a run since RBI became an offcial statistic in 1920 (Elias).
