Freddie Sanchez Leads SF Giants to Game 1 Victory in 2010 World Series

Freddie Sanchez was spraying the ball all over AT&T Park in Game 1 of the 2010 World Series. The San Francisco Giants outscored the Texas Rangers, 11-7, in a game that was more of a blowout than the final score indicates. In what was expected to be a pitching duel between the Rangers Cliff Lee and Giants Tim Lincecum, quickly turned into a hitters’ paradise. Sanchez finished with four of the Giants’ 14 hits, which included six doubles. Sanchez became the first player to hit a double in each of his first three Series at-bats. He nearly had a fourth, too, but the play was scored a single and an error. The Giants improved to 10-0 against Texas at AT&T Park. The Rangers look to bounce back, just like they did in the ALCS against the Yankees in Game 2 Thursday.  Showers are in the forecast when Matt Cain and his 0.00 ERA in two playoff start takes on C.J. Wilson and the Rangers.
