Giants take opening games of weekend set with D-Backs

AT&T PARK — Grant Green connected on a two-run shot, Ruben Tejada supplied an RBI double and the bullpen delivered 4.2 innings of scoreless work, as the San Francisco Giants pushed to a season-high 23 games over .500 on Saturday afternoon.

“I think it speaks volumes to the depth of the organization and to the character of the guys in this room who have stepped right into All-Star’s — in some spots — shoes,” said starter Jake Peavy after the 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. “And those aren’t easy shoes to fill.”

In Friday’s opener, a couple of purpose pitches from Patrick Corbin — the second of which sailed behind Buster Posey’s back — sparked the Giants to a 6-2 win.

“I don’t know what they were thinking throwing at Buster twice,” said Brandon Crawford who promptly hammered a two-run homer over the brick archways in right field after Posey’s walk. “I wanted to make him pay for doing it. I’m not going to sugarcoat it.”Arizona DiamondbacksBrandon CrawfordBuster Poseygrant greenJake Peavykarl buscheckMLBRuben TejadaSan Francisco Giants
