Your rookie of the year delivers
"He's something special" said Harold Reynolds tonight as Buster Posey inside-outed a Rox pitch for a bases loaded double off the right field wall in the 8th -- putting the game out of reach. "They've been looking for that hit for two days," Mike Krukow said on the telecast.
The Giants have had 5 Rookies of the Year -- No. 24 in 1951, the Baby Bull in 1958, Stretch in 1959, Sarge Matthews in 1973 and the Count in 1975.
He had been 4 for 28 until getting a hit and run single in the 7th and the double in the 8th. And he threw out Carlos Gonzalez on a steal. Buster didn't do it all, of course. Here's Grant's recap at McCovey Chronicles --
