      Giants' Buster Posey: Smacks three doubles Friday

      Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a trio of doubles, three RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-0 victory over the Padres.Posey put his gap power on display, tallying three extra-base hits in the same game for just the second time this season. The cold San Francisco night ate up his second double, which likely would have resulted in a home run in almost any other combination of climate and venue. The All-Star backstop hasn't hit a homer in 36 games, but he has offset the power drought with a .303 batting average and 16 RBI over that span.

      Buster Posey is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.Posey missed time with a toe injury earlier this month, but there has been nothing to suggest this absence is related. It seems manager Bruce Bochy is just affording Posey an extended breather -- the team is off Thursday -- so he's well rested for the final series in front of the home crowd this weekend. Posey hasn't homered since Aug. 8 and thus is on pace to see his home-run production decline for a third straight season.
