Sandoval hits three homers as Giants take Game 1

Published: Wed, October 24, 2012 @ 11:37 p.m.

— Pablo Sandoval became just the fourth player to hit three home runs in a World Series game, connecting twice against Justin Verlander and once off Al Alburquerque to lead the San Francisco Giants over the Detroit Tigers, 8-3, in Wednesday night’s opener.

Sandoval hit a solo home run to right-center in the first, a two-run, opposite-field drive to left in the third and another bases-empty shot into the center-field batter’s eye in the fifth. He joined Babe Ruth (1926 and 1928), Reggie Jackson (1977) and Albert Pujols (2011) as the only players with three-homer games in the Series. Barry Zito, who like Sandoval watched the 2010 Series opener from the dugout, won by allowing one run and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Hey Cambridge, if you are reading this, wow I sure was impressed with your Giants last night. I never in my wild dreams thought they'd tag Verlander for 5 runs. I'm a little surprised, with V's history against Sandoval, that he didn't pitch around him more the second time he came up. You guys in SF must have been a-rockin' last night! Good luck in the game tonight!
