Giants score three runs on dribbler thanks to D-Backs' blunders

San Francisco Giants All-Star Buster Posey was placed on the seven-day disabled list on Tuesday, a day after the catcher was hit in the helmet by a fastball. He felt "symptoms" of some sort - manager Bruce Bochy said fogginess - but "nothing insane".

Giants athletic trainer Dave Groeschner and manager Bruce Bochy sprinted towards the home plate immediately.

Walker was booed at the conclusion of the inning. "It just so happens it's the first week".

Posey was certain to undergo the concussion protocol, and it's unclear how long he might be sidelined.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in Major League Baseball action at AT&T Park.

San Francisco's 1-5 start matched its worst six-game start since the Giants' first season out West in 1958, the fifth time doing so - also in 1967, 1980, 2007 and 2008. He held the Cubs to a run on two hits in eight innings, and the Giants bullpen blew a three-run lead in the ninth in a series-clinching loss. He headlines the offense alongside Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford and is one of the faces of the organization next to Madison Bumgarner. He did not walk a batter but did bean David Peralta in the eighth inning.

Matt Moore earned the victory for the Giants, going eight innings allowing three hits and struck out five. On Monday, Moore's exit after allowing three hits was a prelude to Mark Melancon's first save in front of the home crowd. Gorkys Hernandez crashed into the center field wall chasing the ball, allowing all three runners to score easily. "It got away from me". "It's not a big issue for me". "KATY" was spelled on the out-of-town scoreboard while photos and flowers were in the seat she often occupied during the postseason.

"(Ray) gave us a quality outing", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.

Giants: Right-handed reliever Hunter Strickland returned from the paternity list and LHP Steven Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. After a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, his teammates and Bochy were cautiously optimistic about Posey.
