Posey hits game-winning single in 13th, Giants beat Cubs

Buster Posey would prefer not to discuss his inflamed right hip, and notes that if it wasn’t the reason he has to skip the All-Star Game it might still be a secret that he needs an injection once the first half wraps up this weekend.

It has affected him hitting and behind the plate.

That’s what made Posey’s game-ending hit all the more impressive.

Posey singled off the right-field wall with two outs in the 13th inning for his fifth career game-ending hit, sending the San Francisco Giants past the Chicago Cubs 5-4 on Wednesday.

San Francisco’s Johnny Cueto struck out seven in five innings in his second start back from a lengthy trip to the disabled list with a sprained elbow. The right-hander hasn’t won since April 28.

Cueto was under a careful watch in just his seventh start of 2018 because of two trips to the DL.

Bryant hit his 10th homer in the fifth following a single by Jason Heyward, who homered leading off the third.

He’s the third player Washington drafted from Virginia Tech this year and he played one season for current Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray. That familiarity helped the https://www.elitecheapnfljerseyshop.com/ Redskins in deciding whether or not to draft a player who was declared academically ineligible for his redshirt senior season. He also was arrested on a marijuana charge in 2016, but told The Sporting News that he has passed eight or nine drug tests this year.

The Redskins like that Alexander has good size and length at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds and they view him as a press corner. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at his Pro Day earlier this summer — a time that likely dissuaded teams from using a higher pick on him.

The Redskins lose a sixth-round pick in the 2019 draft by selecting Alexander, but the team expects to add two compensatory sixth-rounders in 2019 based on free agency losses. That’s one reason they felt comfortable taking a chance in this round Wednesday.

The Redskins have some unsettled jobs at corner. They opted not to re-sign Bashaud Breeland in free agency wholesale nfl jerseys china and signed veteran Orlando Scandrick. They also have Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau who can play outside as well opposite Josh Norman. Scandrick will work both outside and inside.
