After playing through pain that’s zapped his power for several weeks, Posey still found enough strength to catch 13 innings and provide the closing salvo as the Giants secured their 30th win of the season at AT&T Park.

“Catchers are a whole different breed,” reliever Dereck Rodríguez said. “They get banged up back there and they go like it’s nothing. To be feeling something for the majority of the season with his hip and still go back there every day and hit the ball as well as he is, he’s just a whole different animal.”
