When Buster Posey made his Turner Field debut in 2010, three hours from his hometown, friends, relatives and the local press all wanted a piece of him, and he went 1-for-11 in a four-game series. In the opener of his second regular-season series here Tuesday night, he took a big slice out of the Braves.

Posey hit a two-out double to cash in a game-opening walk by Gregor Blanco, hit a two-out RBI single in the third after Melky Cabrera's hustle double then finished a five-RBI effort with a three-run double in the fourth. He had driven in that many runs only once, in a July 2010 game at Milwaukee.
