Buster Posey struck on helmet by pitch

San Francisco Giants' Brandon Crawford follows through on an RBI single as San Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges watches during the ninth inning of a baseball game in San Diego Saturday

Posey reported feeling fine after taking a fastball off his batting helmet Monday afternoon at AT&T Park, but Pavlovic notes Tuesday that the Giants "don't want to take any risks" with their star catcher.

Posey immediately went down as manager Bruce Bochy and trainer Dave Groeschner raced to the plate.

Walker was booed at the conclusion of the inning and every time out thereafter. "It just so happens it's the first week. I had to show those guys that I was going to be able to throw strikes and get them swinging a little bit". That might be some concern for Giants fans, as they hope Posey doesn't go through the same thing. Moore's 93-pitch start Monday was clearly different beyond having a trusted closer.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Giants are -125 money line favorites versus the Diamondbacks, who have odds of +105 to pull off the upset again in San Francisco. Bochy noted that Posey could potentially be San Francisco's designated hitter against the Royals. Jarrett Parker added a two-run triple for San Francisco.

"(Ray) gave us a quality outing", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. Mark Melancon got his second save.

Samardzija (0-2) held the Diamondbacks to three runs despite allowing five hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings. "I enjoyed it. I got fired up there".

The Giants also observed a moment of silence for former major-league executive Katy Feeney, who died suddenly on Opening Day, and Giants employees who died over the offseason.

Giants: Right-handed reliever Hunter Strickland returned from the paternity list and LHP Steven Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. The Diamondbacks earned their seventh win in nine games this season, equaling the best start in franchise history. Jeff Samardzija gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 10.13 ERA and nine strikeouts this season.
