Buster Posey continued to swing a scalding bat in Wednesday's win over the Brewers, finishing 2-for-4 with a two-run single.

The San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman hears that Buster Posey (thumb) is expected to start against the Dodgers.

Posey has been fighting through an irritated nerve in his right thumb. This has been a problem that has nagged him at times this season -- he received time off earlier this week -- but it does not appear to be enough to keep him out of the lineup for a prolonged stretch. At least not as things stand right now.
