Buster Posey hits two-run, near splash hit in first at-bat of 2021 NLDS

It’s like he never left.

In Buster Posey’s first postseason game in five years, the future Hall-of-Fame catcher wasted no time putting the Giants on the board. Facing a 3-0 count against Dodgers ace Walker Buehler in the first inning, Posey pounced on a fastball up in the zone, hitting a two-run blast that was extremely close to being the first opposite field splash hit in Oracle Park history. Had it not hit the first water tower, it may have landed straight into the cove.

The home run was Posey’s fifth postseason blast of his career, and his first since 2012. It’s also the first home run ever hit off Buehler in a 3-0 count.
