Latest Update Pablo Sandoval enjoys three-hit night Sat Oct, 11, 11:36 PM
Mixes a sweet swing (from both sides of the plate) with superb focus, some power and clutch ability. Is good defensively at third but can also play first base, if required.
Flaws: : Has to keep his weight in check at all times, since it's a problem for him. Also he doesn't have a natural home-run swing. Despite good hustle, he's not effective on the basepaths.
Sandoval is enjoying a solid post-0season as he is now 9-for-27 (.333) with a double, one RBI and four runs scored. It could be just a matter of time before he starts swinging for power again which would obviously elate the Giants fans here in the playoffs. Analyst: Howard Bender
Sandoval is hitting .250 this postseason, and the Giants will need that to improve if they want to make a deep run in the playoffs. He is their clean up hitter, and they need to get constant production from him out of that spot.Analyst: Colby Conway
A game-tying double for the Panda was huge as the Giants were down to their last out and were able to turn the entire game around and eventually win it in 18 exhausting innings. It may have been his only hit in seven trips to the plate, but it was a big one indeed. He'll look to help the team lean on the Nationals on Monday as the Giants look to end things quickly.Analyst: Howard Bender
For a free swinger, Sandoval did not look anything like it tonight. He saw a team high 26 pitches, and the team will look for him to continue this production the rest of the playoffs. Analyst: Colby Conway
