SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Buster Posey drove in three runs with NBA star Kevin Durant cheering him from the stands, Barry Zito pitched another gem and the San Francisco Giants completed a sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 10-0 win Wednesday.
Staked to a quick lead, Zito (2-0) won his 11th straight decision, including last postseason. San Francisco earned its 16th consecutive victory in games he started, the longest such unbeaten run by a Giants pitcher since 16 in a row by Carl Hubbell for New York in 1936, STATS said.
Zito has thrown 14 scoreless innings so far, for the deepest the lefty has gone without giving up a run to start a season in his 14-year career.
Posey tripled, doubled, singled and scored twice.
