Ex-Bucco Sanchez makes history in game one
Freddy Sanchez made history during game one of the world series against the Rangers on Wednesday night. Sanchez hit three doubles in his first three at-bats becoming the first player in world series history to do so.
“Obviously, for no one to have done that yet, it’s something special,” Sanchez said. “For just a little guy like me to go out there and be able to do it.
Sanchez helped the Giants defeat the Rangers 11-7 and take a 1-0 series lead. He went 4-for-5 with three doubles, three RBI and two runs scored.
“A couple of those pitches we wanted to get a little deeper in on him,” Texas manager Ron Washington said of Sanchez. “But that guy can hit, man.”
“Freddy is a great player — I mean, this guy did win the batting title one year,” Bochy said. “He can hit, and he can hit good pitching, and he showed that tonight, and really, throughout the playoffs.
