Giants C Buster Posey homers, drives in three in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(12:58 am ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey was involved in all of the team's offense during Friday's 4-2 victory over the Braves. Posey got the scoring started with a two-run home run in the first inning, and then added an RBI-double and scored a run in the eighth.

The home run was Posey's eighth of the season. The two-hit performance brought his season batting average just over the .300 mark.

Posey waited until the ninth inning to keep his streak alive, singling to right field to finish 1-for-3 on the evening. Posey's career-high hit streak remains 21 games, which he accomplished in 2010. 

The catcher is hitting .310/.382/.468 on the season.

"I got that one pretty good," Posey said, per MLB.com. "I've hit some balls to that spot before that haven't gone out, but I thought that one would."

Giants C Buster Posey batters Kershaw in Tuesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Several Giants managed to hit safely Tuesday against Dodgers stud left-hander Clayton Kershaw. But only one sent him down to defeat.

That was catcher Buster Posey, who drove in both runs in a taut victory. He singled in a run in the first and slammed a 407-foot solo homer to dead center in the fourth.

Posey continues to rake for a team that has struggled to score much of the year, though the blast was his first since April 12. He is batting .302 (13-for-43) since April 19 in raising his average from .219 to .263.


Giants 1B Brandon Belt to see more time in left field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt will see more time in left field as manager Bruce Bochy looks for a way to get Belt and catchers Buster Posey and Andrew Susac in the lineup at the same time, CSN Bay Area reports.

Belt drew a start in left field last Sunday for the first time since 2012, and it appears he'll see more work in the outfield moving forward. However, the impending return of right fielder Hunter Pence could also create a playing-time crunch between Belt, Susac and outfielder Nori Aoki.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Aoki, who received his first off day of the season Friday, is hitting .311 with three RBI in 74 at-bats this season. Also in the lineup Saturday is catcher Andrew Susac, with Buster Posey shifting to first base and moving Brandon Belt to the bench. Susac, making just his third start of the year, is hitting 3 for 8 with two strikeouts to start the year.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Giants catcher Buster Posey broke out of his normal daily routine with an early round of batting practice prior to Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, reports Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Posey, who is hitting only .229 to start the season, worked on hitting the opposite field.

"He did some work off a tee today to get a couple things figured out," manager Bruce Bochy said. "You don't see it a lot, but I know Buster is trying. These guys are really trying. That goes with the territory."

Posey has only four hits over his last 24 at-bats. Two of Posey's four hits over that seven-game span are home runs. He has driven in six runs over first 14 games.
