A team that desperately needed a spark finally got it yesterday in Washington, and it unexpectedly came off the bat of Hector Sanchez, whose struggles have certainly contributed to the Giants’ offensive woes this year. But this is why we watch the games folks. Even in a season with so much disappointment, baseball can be beautiful. Last place, first place, it doesn’t matter in moments like the one young Hector provided yesterday. Sanchez has had some serious ups and downs in his short career. He’s won a World Series, but you’d have to think this is the greatest individual feat for him as a big leaguer.
I’ll leave it at that, and give you the link to Sanchez’ pinch hit, go-ahead, 3-run homer in the 9th. It hasn’t gotten old yet, and I doubt it will. You just never know, in this fickle game of baseball.
Finally…stay hot Brandon Belt.
