Recap: Giants Win 15-2 Blowout In Game Three

It was all Buster Posey all the time, or at least that's how it will be remembered. In the San Francisco Giants' best offensive showing this year, Posey hit a grand slam in the fourth to accentuate his coming-out performance which included four hits, including two homers, while driving in six runs in a performance that he won't soon forget. At least until he bests all of the career highs he set tonight.

Posey was just the bright spot in the 15-run win over the Milwaukee Brewers, which started off on a high point with homers from Aubrey HuffAndres Torres and the aforementioned Posey in the first inning - the first time the Giants have opened a game with three homers since 1999. The 15 runs scored are the most from the Giants since May of 2007. The four total home runs were also a season high.

Tim Lincecum had a very good showing, rebounding from a string of bad games by striking out 10 and giving up one run in seven innings. It's such an odd thing to be reading about an offensive explosion from the Giants that Lincecum's strong performance was almost overlooked. A good bounce back after suffering losses in his last two starts.

Freddy Sanchez and the previously mentioned Torres finished the night with two hits and three runs batted in.

Chris Narveson hung up the ol' pitching arm (I'll get that term to stick) in 3 1/3 innings after giving up 10 runs.

Up three games in the four game series, the Giants are looking to complete a sweep with another strong win in game four.
