Wilson Ramos stands right behind him in average with .336 to go along with 33 extra base hits and 54 RBIs.

Posey is hitting .285 on the season with 12 home runs and 47 RBIs. Brandon Belt is having a good year, hitting .283 with 27 doubles to go along with 49 runs batted in.
Brandon Crawford leads the Giants in RBIs with 63; he is also hitting .272 with 31 extra base hits on the year. This Giants team better be tuned up to go up against Scherzer in this one.
The Giants have Jeff Samardzija on the mound Friday against the red hot Nationals lineup. Samardzija is currently 9-6 on the year with a 4.22 E.R.A. and 97 strikeouts.
