On October 24, 2012 — In the Giants’ 8-3 victory over the Tigers at AT&T Park, Pablo Sandoval becomes the fourth major leaguer to hit three home runs in a World Series game. The San Francisco third baseman, with first, third, and fifth inning round-trippers in the opening game of the Fall Classic, joins Yankees outfielders Babe Ruth (1926, 28) and Reggie Jackson (1977) and Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols (2011) in accomplishing the feat.

Barry Zito pitches 5 2/3 innings for the win, as Tigers ace Justin Verlander is the loser.
