San Francisco Giants: Week 1 Review

He was tagged for five runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeout across three innings in his first Triple-A start of the 2017 season. The Diamondbacks earned their seventh win in nine games this season, equaling the best start in franchise history. "I feel pretty good", Posey said before Tuesday's game against Arizona. "We've always gotten calls on him", Evans said. Posey and Nick Hundley are the only two catchers on the Giants' roster.

Two, if Posey's injury was going to keep him out for more than 1-2 games, a DL stint is nearly completely necessary. "Which is good news". "But Joe thought he felt good past year, also".

"It's a smart move, especially to have that one yesterday and as a catcher, you never know."

He was placed on the disabled list because he experienced concussion symptoms. "At the end of the day, I just didn't make quality pitches".

Remember when the schedule came out, and April was declared a critical month for both the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants?

"That was fun", said Parker, who pumped a fist as he emerged from his head-first slide. "I enjoyed it. I got fired up there".

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.

Cory Gearin struck out three straight batters to end the inning. Moore denied it was in retaliation for Posey. However, just over a week later he started to show signs of a concussion and ultimately missed 23 games.

It was far from a vintage performance by Cain, but considering the way the past few years have gone, the Giants and their former ace will take it.

"We got Mark here to help out and take a load off these starters in that situation", Bochy said. "Sure. But that's the luxury of having one of the elite closers in the game".

When the relievers blow 30 saves in a season and two more in the first round of the playoffs, including an appalling ninth-inning meltdown in Game 4 of the Division Series, thoughts of a repeat rush back quickly to mind.
