Giants 1B Brandon Belt slugs two solo home runs in win Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(12:14 am ET) Giants 1B Brandon Belt had a big night at the plate in the 9-7 win over the Rangers. The Texas-native went 2 for 4 with a pair of solo home runs in the extra-innings victory.
Belt bookended the Giants' scoring on Saturday. He got the Giants on the board with a solo home run in the third inning, cutting the Rangers' lead to one. Then, after the Giants took a 9-8 lead in the 11th, he delivered his second solo dinger of the night, giving him 12 homers on the year.
Both of Belt's home runs on Saturday came off of left-handers--he had not homered off of a southpaw this season prior to Saturday.
After Saturday's performance, Belt is batting .306 with three home runs and nine home runs over his past 10 games.

Belt has hit safely in 11 of his past 12 games, batting .333 with five two-baggers over that stretch.
Giants 1B Brandon Belt belts homer in Wednesday victory
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games, but he did something Wednesday that he had not done previously during that stretch. He knocked one over the fence for the first time since June 20.
Belt blasted his 10th homer, a 413-foot solo shot in the sixth inning that tied the game. He also walked twice in improving his on-base percentage to a strong .353.
Giants 1B Brandon Belt dropped to eighth in batting order Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was dropped to eighth in the batting order Sunday against the Diamondbacks for the first time all season. He had hit seventh in the two previous games.
Belt is 1 for 11 with five strikeouts in the first two games out of the All-Star break. He is batting .318 (14 for 44) with six doubles, three RBI, six runs, five walks, 13 strikeouts and two stolen bases in 12 July games.
Giants put Buster Posey at first, Brandon Belt in left
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/18/15) The Giants gave Buster Posey a day off from behind the plate on Saturday.
Posey will play first base for the 22nd time this year and second time in the last three games.
Regular first baseman Brandon Belt will move to left field for the 10th time.
Andrew Susac replaces Posey at catcher. It's his 29th start and fourth in the last seven games.
|2014 Summary: Injuries took a huge toll on Brandon Belt in 2014. He missed most of the first half with a fractured left thumb and then made two separate trips to the 7-day concussion DL in the second half. When Belt did play, he provided plenty of power, blasting 12 home runs in 61 games, but strikeouts (30 percent of at-bats) and popups (11 percent of hit balls) were issues. Belt batted just .243 and got on base at a .306 clip.|
Playing time status: Belt is reportedly fully recovered from his concussion and hit well upon his return from his second stint on the 7-day DL. He will resume his role as the Giants' full-time first baseman this season.
2015 Outlook: He may not be the batting average and on-base threat he once promised to be, but Belt's growing power makes him worthy of a mid-round pick in standard mixed leagues. He appears primed for his first 20-plus home run season, and 30 homers isn't out of reach either.
