MIAMI — The National League’s only living seven-hit men met Wednesday.

Rennie Stennett visited Marlins Park so he could congratulate San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford, who had seven hits in Monday’s 14-inning victory at Miami.

The seven-hit game was the first since Stennett went 7 for 7 for the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field in 1975.

“It was cool to meet him,” Crawford said. “We talked about the game he had a little bit and how he’ll never forget it. I said, ‘I’m sure I won’t either.’ ”

Crawford and Stennett shook hands and posed for photos on the field before the final game of the Giants-Marlins series.

Stennett, 65, was a .274 hitter in 11 seasons with the Pirates and Giants. He lives in Florida.

“I feel good just being remembered,” he said.

The only other NL player with a seven-hit game was Wilbert Robinson of Baltimore in 1892. The record is nine hits by Johnny Burnett of Cleveland in 1932.

BLUE JAYS: Slugger Jose Bautista went on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained left knee.

Bautista stumbled and fell while attempting to make a throw from right field in the third inning Tuesday in a 9-2 loss to Tampa Bay. His knee worsened overnight, leading to an MRI that confirmed a Grade 1 sprain.

Earlier this week, center fielder Kevin Pillar went on the 15-day DL with a sprained left thumb.

ANGELS: Ace Garrett Richards hopes to begin throwing next week as he seeks to avoid Tommy John surgery.

Richards last pitched on May 1 and was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament five days later.

He won’t pitch again this season, but he’s been undergoing stem-cell treatments in hopes of avoiding surgery that would sideline him through 2017.

PADRES: Hector Olivera was placed on unconditional release waivers, and San Diego will be responsible for the rest of the $62.5 million, six-year deal he signed with the Dodgers in 2015.

Olivera, a 31-year-old outfielder and third baseman from Cuba who did not play a single game for the Padres, hit .245 with two homers and 13 RBI under the deal, appearing in 30 big league games and getting 98 at-bats. He will wind up receiving a total of $60,707,650.

ASTROS: Carlos Gomez was designated for assignment, ending a disappointing stint with the team that traded four prospects in a midseason deal last year for the two-time All-Star center fielder.

The 30-year-old was batting .210 with 100 strikeouts in 295 at-bats and a woeful .594 on-base-plus-slugging percentage.

METS: Infielder Jose Reyes will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Class A Brooklyn.

Reyes has been out since July 26 with a left oblique strain.

Reyes signed a minor league contract with New York on June 25 after being released by Colorado following a domestic violence suspension.
