Hamstrings bother Posey & Pablo, but not much

Wednesday, Aug. 22

LOS ANGELES — On the 47th anniversary of the Marichal-Roseboro incident, no fights erupted between the Giants and Dodgers. Just some injuries which, fortunately for the Giants, appeared mild.

Manager Bruce Bochy said after San Francisco’s 8-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers that catcher Buster Posey, who missed the game with a tight right hamstring, could return to the lineup as soon as Thursday, when the Giants open a four-game home series against Atlanta.

“We feel pretty good that he’s going to be OK to (play) tomorrow,” Bochy said. “If he needs another day (off), he’s going to take it.”

Bochy removed Pablo Sandoval in the middle of the sixth inning when the third baseman’s left hamstring tightened as he ran the bases. But Sandoval insisted that he’ll be fit to play Thursday, a sentiment that Bochy echoed.
