SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Buster Posey hit a game-ending two-run homer for his third clout in two nights, sending the San Francisco Giants past the Colorado Rockies 4-2 last night for Bruce Bochy's 1,600th managerial victory. Posey followed his two-home run performance a night earlier with a go-ahead single in the seventh inning, then an even bigger hit. He has hit safely in 12 of his past 13 games.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Rene Rivera tied the game with a home run in the ninth inning, then won it with an RBI single in the 10th inning as the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 last night. Rivera opened the ninth inning with his ninth homer, a shot off Francisco Rodriguez, to tie the score 2-2.

PHOENIX (AP) - Clayton Kershaw allowed only an unearned run in eight innings to become the first 16-game winner in the majors, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1 last night. Kershaw (16-3) allowed six hits, retiring 12 of the final 13 batters he faced, seven by strikeout, to improve to 13-1 in his last 16 starts. The left-handed ace struck out 10 and walked two.

HOUSTON (AP) - Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 5-4 win over the Houston Astros last night. The A's trailed by one entering the ninth before Eric Sogard's RBI single, and Fuld's two-out shot off Chad Qualls (1-4) landed in the seats in right field to put Oakland up 5-3.
