Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey continues to struggle in the 2014 World Series.
Insight: Posey hit with the bases loaded and one out in the third inning. San Francisco had just allowed Kansas City to score seven runs in the second, so any kind of run would have meant a slight swing in momentum. Instead, Posey grounded into a double play to end the inning. Posey is batting just .190 since the start of the NLCS and doesn't have an extra base hit the entire postseason.
 
10/25/2014 9:41:00 AM

Description: Buster Posey is getting start at first base this afternoon for the Giants.
