Posey goes 5 for 5 in 6 innings, Giants rout Brews

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Buster Posey went 5 for 5 and drove in three runs in just six innings, then was pulled early as the San Francisco Giants routed the Milwaukee Brewers 13-2 on Friday night for their fourth straight win.

Posey had a triple in his second career five-hit game. The star catcher is batting .500 (20 for 40) with five home runs and 13 RBIs in his past nine games.

Gregor Blanco hit a two-run homer to back Ryan Vogelsong's first victory in four starts. The Giants scored a season high in runs and have their longest winning streak since five straight victories in early June.

Hunter Pence hit a trio of run-scoring singles, Joe Panik had four hits and Angel Pagan wound up a home run shy of the cycle.

Vogelsong (8-9) snapped an 0-5 skid at home, where he had received zero runs of support in each of his previous five outings at AT&T Park.
