Rowand, Posey rally Giants past Nationals 10-5
WASHINGTON (AP) – Buster Posey hit a tiebreaking single in a four-run seventh inning and added a two-run homer that withstood a video review in the San Francisco Giants’ 10-5 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.
Brought in to protect a 5-4 lead in the seventh, Tyler Clippard (8-6) allowed Aaron Rowand’s one-out homer to left on a full-count changeup. Freddy Sanchez and Aubrey Huff walked, and both were running when Posey sent a single through the hole between first and second to put the Giants ahead.
Juan Uribe then hit a two-run double to right-center for an 8-5 lead.
