Former Pirate Freddy Sanchez A Hero In Giants' Game One World Series Win

Former Pirate star Freddy Sanchez had three doubles in the San Francisco Giants' 11-7 win over the Texas Rangers in the first game of the 2010 World Series. Sanchez delivered the first RBI in a two-run third inning, then helped kick-start a much bigger inning in the fifth, when his double brought home the first of six runs for the Giants. The game was a big matchup between Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum, but it turned out to be a slugfest instead. As for Sanchez, his three-double, four-hit performance harked back to his 2006 season with the Pirates, when he batted .344 with 53 doubles, including many that looked like his line-drive stinger in the the third inning, and seemed to have three-double sorts of games about twice a week.
