Wednesday night, the road back to the World Series for the defending champion San Francisco Giants took a dramatic and painful twist.
Scott Cousins scored the go-ahead run in a brutal collision with Posey at home plate in the 12th inning, injuring the Giants star catcher in a 7-6 loss to the Florida Marlins. The Giants said there would be no test results released until Thursday, when he'll have an MRI exam.
Teammates were still coming to grips with the loss.
"It's huge. He's one of the leaders of the team already and what he brings every day is something you can't replace," Giants right fielder Nate Schierholtz said. "I'm just hoping for the best. I couldn't really see what happened from out there. I was just hoping for the best, maybe he got the wind knocked out of him or something."
