The 108th World Series started off with something never seen before. Pablo Sandoval connected for 3 home runs in his first 3 at bats tonight. He will, and deservedly so, get all the press tonight. He had the big swings , and will now stand with Ruth (twice), Reggie, and Pujols, as the only players to ever have 3 HR’s in one World Series game. He tacked on a single in the 7th for good measure as well. His 13 total bases ranks 2nd all time for one game, behind only Albert’s 14 TB in his 3 homer game last year. Pablo had one less PA.
