Posey hits 3 run homer as Giants beat Cubs 6-3
(SAN FRANCISCO) – Buster Posey twice watched plays he was part of go to replay, first on a three-run homer that held up and then a stolen base, that also held up. Posey's first-inning shot provided a nice early cushion to Ty Blach, who won his second straight start as the Giants beat the Chicago Cubs 6-3 on Tuesday night. Replay showed Posey's drive to left-center had just enough to clear the wall and left fielder Jon Jay's outstretched glove before being caught by a fan. Blach (8-7) hit an RBI single to help his cause and the Giants snapped a four-game losing streak to the Cubs with just their third win in the last 10 against Chicago. Ian Happ had an RBI double and sacrifice fly as Chicago lost for only the second time in its last 14 road games dating to July 2. Cubs starter Jose Quintana (2-2) allowed four runs and six hits in six innings, striking out three and walking one. He faced San Francisco only once previously, taking a loss on Aug. 13, 2014, at AT&T Park, while with the White Sox.
