"He said he felt fine, which is good", Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said.

The Diamondbacks bats were flaccid and the hosting San Francisco Giants with the pitching of Matt Cain had a lot to do with it. Cain allowed one run over five innings and his performance overshadowed the somewhat solid start by the Diamondbacks Shelby Miller. Moore's 93-pitch start Monday was clearly different beyond having a trusted closer.

Giants catcher Buster Posey was struck in the head following a 0-1 fastball form Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker.

Catcher Tim Federowicz had his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento to take Posey's spot, while right-hander Clayton Blackburn was designated for assignment.

"This is his second start of the year", Bochy said. "It's one of the worst sounds you can hear in baseball, the ball hitting the helmet". It's a scary moment. Home run king Barry Bonds was among those in attendance. "I think we thought this was the smart move with me being the catcher". He anxious about his catcher. Jarrett Parker slid under the tag giving the Giants a three-run lead. Seconds after it played for the first time, he was sitting in the dirt. Two errors were charged. The first came in 2011, when a broken leg caused him to miss the season's final four months. He struggled to throw strikes at times, but he relied on the strikeout to get through his 5 1/3 frames.

Cory Gearin struck out three straight batters to end the inning. "I enjoyed it. I got fired up there". If that weren't enough, just last month, he helped Team USA win their first-ever World Baseball Classic championship. "It's not a big issue for me".

The Giants also observed a moment of silence for former major-league executive Katy Feeney, who died suddenly on Opening Day, and Giants employees who died over the offseason.
