Pablo Sandoval won’t be having any three-homer games in the World Series this October, but he did accomplish the feat for the first time in the regular season Wednesday as the Giants crushed the Padres 13-5.

Sandoval had a modest 10 homers this season before taking three relievers deep tonight. He had a two-run shot off Brad Brach in the fifth, a solo homer off Brad Boxberger in the eighth and then a three-run bomb off Dale Thayer in the ninth.

The homers also gave him his first career six-RBI game.

Sandoval previously hit three homers in Game 1 of the World Series last year against the Tigers. He finished the postseason with six in 66 at-bats. This year, he had just two in 238 at-bats since the beginning of June.

    Performance enhancing donuts are ruining baseball these days.

    More like performance-enhancing quinoa. Pablo’s been on a diet:

    “If San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is looking a little slimmer these days, it’s because he has a culinary ally helping him – his older brother Luis, who has been traveling with the player and preparing his meals. Sandoval, dubbed “Kung Fu Panda” for his ample physique, has dropped more than 20 pounds in the past month and a half.”

      20 pounds off Pablo is like throwing a deck chair off the Titanic. The fried plantains will be back with a vengeance, also with extra sour cream and sugar.
