an Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval became the fourth baseball player in history to hit three home runs in a World Series game, powering his team to an 8-3 win over the Detroit Tigers in Wednesday's game one of this year's series. The only people to perform the feat before him were Albert Pujols, Reggie Jackson, and Babe Ruth, who did it twice. When Sandoval blasted his third homer, in the fifth inning, the crowd erupted in cheers. "I still can't believe it," Sandoval said. "When you're a little kid, you dream about being in the World Series. But I wasn't thinking about being in this situation, three homers in one game, you know?"
