MLB: Sandoval’s big night…Giants take game 1

Pablo Sandoval joined Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols as the only players to ever hit three home runs in a World Series game on Wednesday night. The San Francisco Giants third baseman hit two home runs off Detroit Tigers starter and reigning AL Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander, and then added another long ball off of Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque, as he hit the three dingers in his first three at-bats. Sandoval also added a single in the 7th inning to complete his 4-4 night, en route to leading his club to an 8-3 victory over the Tigers, in game 1 of the Fall Classic.
The two clubs will be back at it on Thursday night for game 2, as the Tigers will send out right-hander Doug Fister to try and even the series in San Francisco. This will be no easy task as lefty and 16 game winner Madison Bumgarner, will be on the mound for the Giants.
