SAN FRANCISCO -- Buster Poseys 1,000th hit came on a home run that bounced off the top of the wall and over. The fan who grabbed the souvenir ball gladly returned it, and Posey offered a bat in trade.That kind of good fortune is exactly what the San Francisco Giants need this final week as they make a playoff push -- and more of the same kind of offensive production from up and down the lineup.Hunter Pence went deep one batter after Posey in the fifth inning during a 19-hit night for San Francisco, and the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 12-3 on Tuesday.Its a cool accomplishment, Posey said. I think back of being a kid and thinking about, the opportunity to play in the major leagues was a dream come true, so to have 1,000 hits is kind of hard to believe.Brandon Crawford tripled twice for San Francisco, which remained a half-game behind the Mets for the top NL wild card and one game up on the Cardinals for the second spot.Matt Moore (12-12) matched his career high with 11 strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings, rebounding from his worst start this season.Posey and Pence hit consecutive solo shots, the fifth time the Giants have had back-to-back homers this year. Each player drove in two runs on the night. Conor Gillaspie added a two-run homer in the eighth.Crawford had two triples in a game for the first time -- one driving in two runs in the eighth -- among his four hits. Brandon Belt tripled, doubled, hit an RBI single and scored two runs for the Giants after manager Bruce Bochy called on his team to get going offensively for this crucial, final week.Not so much different than the Giants challenges down the stretch in their World Series-winning years of 2010, 12 and 14.Its fun, Bochy said. It really is. We wish we were in better position.Joe Panik had a triple, an RBI double and a single. Angel Pagan added two hits, including a run-scoring single, and an RBI groundout.All three NL wild-card contenders won by scoring 12 runs. In fact, Bochy told hitting coach Hensley Meulens hed better have his hitters ready.Hopefully, this gets this offense clicking a little bit, Bochy said. Were going to have to score runs. Were playing good teams and they swing the bat. It will be important we get this offense going a little bit. Thats gotten away from us. Thats my hope, it is something they can build on.Moore was knocked out after only an inning -- the second-shortest start of the leftys career -- in a 9-3 loss at the Dodgers last Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits. He gave up six hits and one run Tuesday and didnt walk a batter.The ball jumps on you, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. He commanded his stuff well.The Giants acquired infielder Gordon Beckham from Atlanta earlier Tuesday and he showed up in San Franciscos dugout making introductions early in the game. Partially blocking Poseys spot postgame in a neighboring locker, Beckham joked to the catcher he was doing an important interview.Colorado got Charlie Blackmons RBI groundout in the third but lost its eighth straight road game.Rockies rookie right-hander German Marquez (1-1) allowed 12 hits and six runs over 4 1/3 innings in his second career start after beating St. Louis in his first one.REMEMBERING FERNANDEZA moment of silence was held for Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez, who died early Sunday in a boating accident. A No. 16 Fernandez Giants jersey hung in the dugout.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Mark Reynolds is not on the clubs final three-game trip to the Bay Area. He broke his left hand after being hit by a pitch against San Diego on Sept. 18, ending his season.Giants: INF Eduardo Nunez had an MRI that showed a mild right hamstring pull that is expected to keep him out a few days, the reason Beckham was added. Nunez could be ready by the weekend series against the Dodgers. ... RHP Johnny Cueto threw a bullpen -- Bochy even stood in as the hitter for a few minutes -- to test his strained left groin and did fine. Cueto is slated to start Thursday as planned without restrictions. He will go through some fielding work Wednesday to make sure the groin is fine. ... OF Mac Williamson was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a quadriceps strain that was unknown to the team until he could barely walk after landing from San Diego on Sunday night.ROSTER MOVESSan Francisco sent Class-A infielder Rich Rodriguez to Atlanta. ... The Giants added C Tony Sanchez to the roster for insurance behind Posey and Trevor Brown. ... LHP Matt Reynolds was designated for assignment.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood (11-9, 4.08 ERA) is 7-1 with a 1.88 ERA in 12 road starts this season. Hes 2-1 with a 2.77 ERA in five career outings at AT&T Park.Giants: RHP Jeff Samardzija (12-10, 3.83) is 1-1 with a 2.38 ERA in three starts this season against the Rockies, going at least seven innings in each one and striking out nine Colorado batters in the past two.

"The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. Saucony Jazz Original Italia. -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. PHILADELPHIA -- Ask Brett Brown to describe what its like figuring out how to use his big men and the Sixers head coach makes it sound as if there are complex formulas scribbled all over his coachs board, like something out of A Beautiful Mind.If you went into my office, you would see it is a Rubiks Cube, Brown said of his minutes plan for Joel Embiid and Jahlil Okafor. I need an abacus.Through the first two weeks, fantasy owners of Embiid and Okafor can empathize with Brown. If you own Embiid, Okafor or some other Sixers, you will have to embrace Embiids nickname and understand that you will be following The Process. You will need some patience but some of these Sixers fantasy options could pay off for you later this season.Lets start with Embiid. The rookie is showing that his versatile game is well worth the two-year wait. Already, the raw 7-footer has a plethora of moves and you can actually see how he can do a bunch of different things but hasnt come close to mastering any one thing yet, a scary thought for opponents.One move during his rookie debut last week -- on a missed shot, no less -- might best sum up his vast talent. Embiid pump-faked a 3, put the ball on the floor, delivered a crossover before backing in his man at the free-throw line, showing the ball and pumping with one hand like Hakeem Olajuwon used to do, before turning around and missing the attempt.Embiid has a nice, soft shot from the arc. He can face up and pop the short jumper or put the ball on the floor and drive past a big man like a guard or forward. He has back-to-the-basket moves, rebounds and he already has blocked Russell Westbrook and Dwight Howard in his first two gamesThe Kansas product started the first two games with a 20-minute playing-time restriction. That was lifted to 24 on Tuesday night and he ended up playing 25 minutes and putting up 18 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and three assists against Orlando.Brown played Embiid in four-minute segments in the first two games and Embiids minutes restriction will continue for the foreseeable future, although its rising a tad. The Sixers are cautious with their big man, understandably, and will hold him out of the tail end of their first back-to-back set on Wednesday at Charlotte.So in season-long fantasy, you will have to monitor reports on his minutes restriction and see if the Sixers have any back-to-backs and adjust accordingly. So far, despite the restriction, Embiid is averaging 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks while shooting 45.9 percent from the field, including 2-of-5 from 3-point range -- all in just 20.6 minutes per game. And that is with him still very much learning every nuance of the game.In leagues where you can set your lineup daily, Embiid is worth using unless you have better options that you know will get a double-double and see 30-plus minutes that night. In daily contests, Embiid is worth using if his price is cheap and his minutes are at 24 or more. He doesnt need much time to flirt with a double-double and the blocks and ability to hit a 3-pointer makes him worth it if the price is right.There will be road bumps and inevitably Embiid will get into foul trouble as he gets more playing time. But already, he is the Sixers go-to guy.We all see different things every time he plays, Brown marveled. To start the [Hawks] game, him trailing and hitting the 3-point shot and in the second half, him up-faking and taking one dribble and making a move a guard would make to get to the rim...We look forward to when we have more minutes available for him.Okafors situation has been a bit more complicated early on. His minutes restriction was shorter until now and the second-year big man did not play on Tuesday night as he continues to come along slowly after right knee surgery.ddddddddddddBrown also brought Okafor off the bench and primarily brought him in when Embiid sat.Okafors fantasy value will depend on his minutes and volume of touches. Hes rusty and needs to play more minutes to be more of a fantasy factor. Through his first two games, Okafor played 15 and 16 minutes and managed to get up a total of 17 shots, but scored just eight points in each game. He also is averaging just 3.5 rebounds.It will be interesting to see what Okafor will do on Wednesday against Charlotte in his first start with Embiid resting. Okafor, a former Duke standout, is expected to play in the 20-minute neighborhood,so it might be best to hold off on Okafor for now.Moving forward, season-long fantasy owners might want to hold on to Okafor and wait and see how he does with more minutes and monitor when the Sixers have back-to-backs. But compared to and because of Embiid, Okafors ceiling is limited right now.Eventually, Brown will look to play Embiid and Okafor more together when the minutes restrictions get looser, and that will be another thing for Brown to figure out. So besides adjusting to the playing time, Embiid and Okafor will also have to adapt to each others game on the court together, which could lead to some growing pains.You just feel like it is cookie-cutter stuff, Brown explained of the restrictions and playing the two together. It is a very rigid road map and that is OK. Nobody is crying about it. It is a challenge.Other Sixers to keep an eye on from a fantasy perspective:Dario Saric -- The rookie forward struggled badly in his first two games in the NBA with a total of 10 points on 4-for-21 shooting. But he finally gave a glimpse of why the Sixers had been high on the Croatian. Saric hit 9-of-15 shots, including 3-of-4 from behind the arc, for 21 points last Tuesday against the Magic. Newly-acquired Ersan Ilyasova might eat into Sarics playing time and could start at power forward instead of Saric. But the rookie should still have value in deeper leagues because the Sixers want to develop Saric and give him experience.Robert Covington -- He looks like rapper Q-Tips doppleganger. Unfortunately, Covington left his jumper in El Segundo, having missed his last 11 shots in each of the last two games. He does have six steals during that span, however, and the minutes and shots should still be there, especially with Jerami Grant gone. Its just the inconsistency that can be frustrating.Sergio Rodriguez -- Spanish Chocolate had his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 assists, hitting two treys. Brown clearly likes the point guard, who is averaging 12.7 points, 8.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 31 minutes per game so far. Rodriguez is owned in 14.4 percent of ESPN leagues, so keep an eye on how he continues to play while Ben Simmons rehabs.Ersan Ilyasova -- The Sixers traded the athletic Grant for Ilysova to provide another shooter who can space the floor for Embiid and Okafor. His value, like many of the other Sixers, could rise later this season if or when pass-first Simmons returns from injury. Ilyasova provides the Sixers with another big on nights when they rest either Embiid or Okafor as well. Monitor Ilyasova if you need a big who can provide some 3s and rebounds.Richaun Holmes -- Keep an eye on this athletic big man if theres an injury to Embiid or Okafor.
