3yInsider Andrew Baggarly chats LIVE from muggy St. Louis before the Giants take on the defending world champion Cardinals in Game 3 of their series at Busch Stadium. Join him at 1 p.m.!
3yBuster Posey is the hottest hitter in baseball and might have the hottest video game as well. While his teammates attempt to master 'Buster Bash,' the Giants' backstop continues to mash.
3yGiants manager Bruce Bochy and pitching coach Dave Righetti assembled the relievers and told them that matchups would dictate who inherits the closer role on a given night.
3yBuster Posey hit a three-run home run in the first inning to provide early run support for Barry Zito, who returned the favor by allowing just two runs in 6.2 innings to help the Giants to a 4-2 win in St. Louis.
3yAngel Pagan and Marco Scutaro both singled, and Buster Posey brought them in with a three-run shot to give the Giants a 3-0 lead. Watch on CSN Bay Area and follow along with In-Game Live!
3yPablo Sandoval's hamstring continues to respond well to increased activity, but the Giants plan to send him for a rehab game or two at Single-A San Jose before reinstating him from the disabled list.
3yRyan Theriot is out of the lineup for the first time since July 19 in Atlanta. Marco Scutaro will make his first start at second base with the Giants, after making 70 starts there for the Rockies this season.
