Posey ends long homerless drought, Giants edge Pirates 3-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) Buster Posey kept insisting the longest homerless drought of his career wasn't weighing on him even as days turned into weeks and weeks stretched into months. The San Francisco Giants catcher believed if he simply kept showing up for work, then the ball would eventually find its way over the fence.

"The stuff that's happened in the past, whether it's this year or another year, it doesn't do any good to harp on it," Posey said.

Maybe, but the smile on the six-time All-Star's face as he bounded into the San Francisco dugout following a three-run shot off Pittsburgh's Chris Archer showed the franchise cornerstone was ready to drop the topic for good. It didn't hurt that Posey's shot produced all the offense his team would need in a taut 3-2 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.
