SAN FRANCISCO -- Buster Posey had a blast behind the plate as much as he did at the plate during the Giants' 5-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.
A day later and Posey, who was given the day off Saturday, was still smiling about Matt Cain's one-hit masterpiece. The catcher admitted contributing to a game like that was fun and memorable.
"He was really good," Posey said. "All four of his pitches were working and they were all sharp. Not one pitch was anything but crisp. If he missed, there was enough action to get away with it. It was a lot of fun."
Posey also contributed offensively, hitting an RBI double in his first regular-season appearance at AT&T Park since his unfortunate collision at home plate last year. He also scored when Aubrey Huff singled and said there was no hesitation regarding his restructured ankle.
"It felt good," said Posey. "For a while, I'm sure, there might be some thought when I hit the bag, but overall it was good."
Posey said since he began baseball-related activity during Spring Training, the ankle has been fine.
"There were a couple of times I could feel it before doing anything baseball related." he said. "I can walk around normally and I'm pleased with the way my ankle has felt the day after."
