Carlos Quentin, who was out of the lineup Friday for the second straight game with soreness in his surgically repaired right knee, was available but not used in Friday's game. Quentin had returned to the lineup Wednesday after a six-game break but soreness returned during that game. Black said he was available off the bench Friday if needed. Chase Headley's blast to right-center Friday off Ryan Vogelsong gave him 29 on the year, leaving him one shy of becoming the 17th 30-homer hitter in franchise history. Giants: Posey earns 'Mac' award
Whatever other hardware Buster Posey might pick up for his performance this year, he already won a prized award in the Giants organization by being named the 2012 recipient of the Willie Mac Award, named after Hall of Famer Willie McCovey and presented to the player considered the most inspirational. Calling it a "great honor," the catcher and cleanup hitter whose numbers are putting him in the thick of the Most Valuable Player race said, "Then to have your name mentioned alongside Willie McCovey's makes it even better." Posey went on to collect his 96th RBI and now has hit safely in 50 of his last 61 games. Angel Pagan's career-high 15th triple gave the Giants 54 on the season, the most in the Majors. The most the Giants have hit in a season since coming to San Francisco is 62 in 1960. Worth noting
The Padres are now 10-8 in September, and the Giants are 14-5. With the two weekend games remaining and then three more in San Diego next week, the Giants lead the season series 9-4.
