Posey was doing well after being struck by a 94 miles per hour fastball in the first inning Monday, a scary moment in San Francisco's 4-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks during its home opener. He felt "symptoms" of some sort - manager Bruce Bochy said fogginess - but "nothing insane". The Giants catcher was able to leave under his own power after a visit from manager Bruce Bochy and the trainer.
Giants catcher Buster Posey was struck in the helmet by a 94 miles per hour fastball in the first inning and forced out of the game, a frightening moment in San Francisco's 4-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks in its. "Even in the first inning it was just a little off the plate and guys were being patient". "I think we can build off today". The fans here are rabid and love the Giants. "At the end of the day, I just didn't make quality pitches". At left is Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Jeff Mathis. Bochy noted that Posey could potentially be San Francisco's designated hitter against the Royals.
And, oh by the way, the Giants won by three runs and Moore was the man who, offensively, made contact on the play that resulted in three runs. He headlines the offense alongside Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford and is one of the faces of the organization next to Madison Bumgarner.
Moore plunked David Peralta on the upper right arm to start the eighth, though it wasn't considered retaliation.
Matt Moore restored some of the joy to the Giants' home opener, throwing eight sterling innings and, with a swing of his bat, sparking a comical play that led to three Giants runs.
The ball caromed off the bottom of the wall, easily allowing all three baserunners to cross the plate and provide Ray an early 3-0 cushion. I got out there as quick as I could.
Diamondbacks: Bench coach Ron Gardenhire is away from the club, with Jerry Narron the acting bench coach. Arizona sits atop the NL West on the strength of a 6-1 start that equals the best in franchise history. "(She) brought joy to her family and to all of us who had the honor to know her", the team said in a statement.
