KXIP vs KKR Live Score

While San Francisco has welcomed back players who were injured late last season such as third baseman Eduardo Nunez and second baseman Joe Panik, the Giants are still waiting for this group to click.

Giants catcher Buster Posey was struck in the head following a 0-1 fastball form Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker. Posey was taken out of the game but he left under his own power and never lost consciousness.

Posey will be re-evaluated Tuesday but, "He's doing good, he's doing fine", Bochy said.

Giants General Manger Bobby Evans said they do not expect Blackburn to remain with the club. While Posey has always been known for his hot bat at the plate, the Giants will likely miss him just as much on the defensive end.

Posey will be restricted from any baseball activities for the next few days while continuing to go through the concussion protocol.

In the meantime, Nick Hundley is the starting catcher.

Remember when the schedule came out, and April was declared a critical month for both the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants? But the bad news is Joe thought he felt fine a year ago. He sat down, waiting for trainer Dave Groeschner with a dazed look on his face. After a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, his teammates and Bochy were cautiously optimistic about Posey. You have to play your best ball against them. "It got away from us in a couple of those games".

Moore would not let that happen again, cruising through eight innings on 93 pitches while yielding just three hits and no walks. He even contributed to a weird, game-turning three-run rally in the fourth. Arizona catcher Jeff Mathis retrieved the ball and also made an errant toss well past the plate.

Chris Iannetta added an RBI single, Pollock singled, scored and Yasmany Tomas added two hits for Arizona.

This would mark Posey's second trip to the DL in his career.
