Posey expected to get rest Tuesday

DENVER -- Manager Bruce Bochy said catcher Buster Posey would "probably" get a day off Tuesday night "because I've played him every day here for a while." Posey made his eighth consecutive start Monday and last had a complete day off Aug. 16.

Posey has thrived at Coors Field where entering Monday he had hit safely in 24 of 28 games, batting .419 (44-for-105) with seven homers, 21 RBIs, a .479 on-base percentage and a .676 slugging percentage.
