Scoreless through two, the Giants got things going in the third. With men on base the previous two innings stranded, they finally put runs on the board in the third. Andres Torres doubled as the leadoff man with a ball that hit the first base bag. Freddy Sanchez had a nine-pitch at-bat but eventually grounded out to third without being able to advance Torres to third. Up came Aubrey Huff, and Tommy Hunter let one hang just long enough for Huff to blast a two-run home run to right field, just left of the pole.
Buster Posey struck out and Cody Ross flew out to right to end the inning, but damage has been done as the GIants lead 2-0 going into the bottom of the third. Madison Bumgarner has yet to give up a run in his World Series debut and Sanchez has played great defense at second base, including tagging out Josh Hamilton on a throw from Posey to end the fourth inning.
