Buster Posey would prefer not to discuss his inflamed right hip Brandon Montour Jersey Kids , and notes that if it wasn’t the reason he has to skip the All-Star Game it might still be a secret that he needs an injection once the first half wraps up this weekend.

It has affected him hitting and behind the plate.

That’s what made Posey’s game-ending hit all the more impressive.

Posey singled off the right-field wall with two outs in the 13th inning for his fifth career game-ending hit, sending the San Francisco Giants past the Chicago Cubs 5-4 on Wednesday.

”Catchers are a whole different breed,” said rookie Dereck Rodriguez, son of Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez. ”They get banged up back there and go like it’s nothing.”

Rodriguez (4-1) pitched three scoreless innings for the win. He also had three of San Francisco’s 16 strikeouts.

Brandon Belt drew a two-out walk from James Norwood (0-1). Andrew McCutchen then singled to bring up Posey, who ended the 4-hour, 30-minute game with San Francisco’s first run since scoring four in the first.

”With two strikes, you’re just kind of in battle mode,” Posey said.

Norwood worked the 12th and 13th in his major league debut. He immediately struck out Brandon Crawford on a 99 mph fastball.

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer in his return from the disabled list, and All-Star Javier Baez tied the game with a solo homer in the seventh.

Tony Watson’s scoreless streak at home ended at 20 2/3 innings with Baez’s 18th homer – and Watson hadn’t allowed a run in 18 innings overall, which had been the longest active streak in baseball.

San Francisco’s Johnny Cueto struck out seven in five innings in his second start back from a lengthy trip to the disabled list with a sprained elbow. The right-hander hasn’t won since April 28.

Cueto was under a careful watch in just his seventh start of 2018 because of two trips to the DL.

Bryant hit his 10th homer in the fifth following a single by Jason Heyward, who homered leading off the third.

Out since June 23 with inflammation in his left shoulder, Bryant rejoined the Cubs from his Double-A rehab assignment. The 2016 NL MVP started at third base before moving to right field in the ninth.

”If I can find a way to hit the ball on the fat part of the bat more often then I’ll have a lot more home runs,” Bryant said. ”It’s as simple as that. It felt good. Unfortunately it was a tough game to lose.”

The Cubs missed a chance when they loaded the bases in the sixth.

Heyward wound up with three hits on a day former Cubs catcher Miguel Montero attended the game to see his old club. Montero, let go by the Nationals after playing only four games this spring Youth Derek Grant Jersey , posted on Twitter: ”I had always speak my mind and today I have to say I miss this team, let’s go cubs.”

Some of San Francisco’s more unheralded contributors staked Cueto to an early cushion.

Chase D’Arnaud homered to begin the first inning for the Giants, the first leadoff drive of his career. Gorkys Hernandez hit a two-run double before Steven Duggar singled him home.

Cubs starter Mike Montgomery gave up eight hits in five innings. He has never beaten the Giants in three starts.

BELT QUIP

Brandon Belt thanked the fans, his teammates and San Francisco’s social media crew for the efforts to get him in the All-Star Game even though he lost out to Milwaukee’s Jesus Aguilar in the final vote.

”I was told Russia actually interfered with this election,” Belt quipped.

FLAN ON THE MIC

Former Giants third base coach, current analyst and talented musician Tim Flannery went the distance as the public address announcer while regular Renel Brooks-Moon participated in San Francisco Mayor-Elect London Breed’s inauguration.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Cubs: While RHP reliever Steve Cishek is always willing to work, he was unavailable after working three straight games and 2 1/3 innings – taking the loss in 11 innings Monday night before earning his third save Tuesday night when Brandon Morrow wasn’t available. … Jon Lester will start Sunday for the Cubs, putting his availability for the All-Star Game in question. Manager Joe Maddon said he’d leave it up to Lester whether to pitch for the NL squad.

Giants: Posey, who will have an injection in his troublesome right hip after Sunday’s game and sit out the All-Star Game, returned to the lineup after a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday.

UP NEXT

Cubs: Following an off day, RHP Tyler Chatwood (3-5, 5.01 ERA) starts Friday at San Diego. Chatwood is looking for his first win in 10 starts since beating the White Sox on May 11.

Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (2-3, 3.09 ERA) pitches Friday in the Bay Bridge Series opener against the Oakland Athletics.



Andre Iguodala knocked down another clutch 3-pointer and let out some rare emotion, triumphantly reaching his arms out wide as he ran back to the defensive end. The Golden State swingman had thrown down a spectacular alley-oop dunk only 31 seconds earlier Vladislav Namestnikov Jersey , and he was feeling it as the clocked ticked away on a second straight lopsided playoff win.

There’s something about Iguodala in the postseason. He paces himself through the regular season to be fresh and ready – and sometimes dominant – on the big stage for the defending NBA champions.

”Everyone gets hyped when Andre gets hyped because that’s a rare occurrence,” teammate Klay Thompson said. ”You might see it on the golf course.”

It’s just what the short-handed Warriors were hoping to see.

Iguodala is back in the starting lineup for Golden State’s first-round series against the Spurs, filling in for Stephen Curry as the two-time MVP recovers from a sprained left knee. That’s how versatile Iguodala is: the 6-foot-6 swingman can be inserted in place of a point guard. The Warriors will go for a 3-0 lead Thursday when the best-of-seven series shifts to San Antonio.

At 34, Iguodala knows how to take care of himself over the long grind of an NBA season, all to be prepared to do whatever is asked of him in the playoffs.

”For us to be able to throw Andre out there really 1 through 4 both offensively and defensively, it’s an incredibly valuable weapon,” coach Steve Kerr said.

That’s when he has been at his brilliant best for the Warriors – and they are getting their money’s worth from a major investment last summer.

Many feared he might leave, but Iguodala received a $48 million, three-year contract to stay put and chase another championship. Even if he could have landed a bigger role elsewhere.

”Well, we met with him and we gave him our pitch and lots of money so we were hoping he wasn’t going to leave,” Kerr said. ”I didn’t anticipate him leaving because he knows this is a great situation for him and we rewarded him for everything he’s done and for what we think he can do for us. I think this year was a good example of that. A lot of people were grumbling about he’s not shooting the ball well or whatever. … It’s the incredible defense, amazing awareness, intelligence, leadership.”

Iguodala keeps it simple Anthony Duclair Jersey , whether he’s in the lineup or coming off the bench: ”Just try to do whatever it takes to help the team get over the hump and get a win.”

In 2015, Kerr moved Iguodala into the starting lineup, and he became Finals MVP as the franchise captured its first championship in 40 years.

Golden State is hoping for the same this spring. Iguodala had only started seven times before Game 1 of the playoffs Saturday, when he had seven rebounds, four assists and three points.

That’s after he missed four of the final five regular season games with a sore left knee.

”He’s definitely got to pace himself, the man’s played so much hoops in the last 15 years,” Thompson said. ”Andre is a gamer. He is going to step up in the biggest moments, and right now it’s the playoffs. We have all the trust in the world for him, that’s why he’s a Finals MVP.”

On Monday, Iguodala finished with 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.

And he can guard anybody.

”His hands are so good. That’s the small thing that people don’t realize, he’s got great hands when he gets steals Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey ,” Kevin Durant said. ”So guys are just thinking about that when they’re trying to score on him. As a scorer you’ve got to think about something other than getting to your spots or getting into your rhythm and it throws you off just a little bit. And that’s all you need to guard the best player, just for them to think just a tiny bit and Dre does that.”

Iguodala was part of the Warriors group that traveled to the Hamptons to persuade Durant to join a super team in July 2016.

”I always knew what Andre could do,” Durant said. ”I played two USA teams with him, so I kind of knew his value. He’s not one of those guys that’s going to go out and say, `Here, Dre, give us 30 points.’ He’s one of those who can do just about everything good – he can shoot, he can pass, he can dribble, he can defend, he can rebound, he can do all those things really good. It’s not like he wants to do one thing more than the other.”
