Spring training: Giants 7, Indians 6

Buster Posey continued to make his case for making the Opening Day roster by doubling home the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the San Francisco Giants beat the Cleveland Indians 7-6 Friday in Scottsdale.

Posey was 1 for 2 coming off the bench for Bengie Molina, who was 1 for 3 with an RBI.

Brian Wilson struck out the side in the ninth to record his first spring save.

Jonathan Sanchez pitched four innings for the first time this spring, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks. He struck out three.
