Buster Buster

A pair of 3-run homers ... THAT'S how you win in Denver, where no lead is ever truly safe. So much so that Bruce Bochy brought in Santiago Casilla with a 5-run lead in the ninth.

Here's the top of the story --

  Buster Posey's second three-run homer of the game keyed a six-run eighth inning as the Giants won for the 14th time in their last 16 games, 10-5, over the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday afternoon.
Posey, who homered in the first inning off Rockies starter Eddie Butler, flipped the game to the Giants in the eighth with his seventh homer of the season -- off Carlos Estevez, after Joe Panik and Matt Duffy had singled. Jarrett Parker added an RBI single and Gregor Blanco singled in two runs as the Rockies needed three pitchers to complete the inning.
The Giants' eight hits in the eighth were their most in any inning since they had eight in the top of the third on Aug. 17, 2012, at San Diego.
