For those who have not heard Pablo Sandoval became only the fourth player in MLB history to hit 3 HRs in a World Series game. The other three who did it are Babe Ruth , Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols. That’s a pretty incredible list of players.
To make this record tying night more amazing is that Pablo Sandoval is not a known to be a slugger. He only had 12 home runs in the regular season. What else makes this night stand out is that two of the three home runs came off of Detroit’s ace Justin Verlander.
The MLB post season is all about finding that magic and for game one that person was Pablo Sandoval. The Giants take a 1 – 0 advantage on the Tigers. Lets see what other magical nights this World Series has to offer. Until than enjoy the three home runs.
