New York, NY. -- Without putting runners in scoring position, the Rays hardly have opportunities to bring them home.

Phoenix, AZ.--
The Giants' catcher thrived offensively Saturday. His 3-for-4 evening featured a two-run, tiebreaking homer in the sixth inning, which surely will help his chances in the Most Valuable Player balloting.

San Francisco's catcher also excelled on defense. He ushered Barry Zito and three relievers through Arizona's lineup and threw out two would-be basestealers, including a breathtaking peg from his knees to retire the second runner.

That catcher, who did so much to forge the Giants' 3-2 victory over the D-backs, actually was a pair of people. You've guessed their identities, of course -- Buster Posey, who made one of his occasional shifts to first base, and Hector Sanchez, who actually donned the tools of ignorance as the Giants won their fourth game in a row.
