SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants' climb to the top of the National League West standings has been accompanied by rising sales of Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum jerseys.

Since the regular season began, according to Major League Baseball public relations, Posey's No. 28 jersey has been the No. 2 seller among fans. Only the jersey of Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who's retiring after this season, has outsold Posey's.

Posey's popularity has picked up since the offseason, when the jersey of the Giants catcher ranked seventh in sales.

Lincecum didn't appear on the offseason list, but he has climbed into 20th in jersey sales since Opening Day. Winning two Cy Young Awards and making four All-Star teams have kept the Giants right-hander on the edge of the public's consciousness.
