You need to restore some normalcy to a baseball game?
Don't call Alberto Alburquerque.
Verlander was out of the game after four innings. Alburquerque was in. Sandoval came up again in the fifth. He'd never hit three home runs in any game. Only three men in major-league history had ever hit three home runs in one World Series game. Pablo Sandoval hit only seven home runs at AT&T Park all season.
Take your statistics and shove it. Game 1 of the 2012 World Series belongs to Panda ...
Alburquerque didn't have any problems with the other three Giants he faced in the fifth. Which doesn't do the Tigers any good, because they're now trailing 6-0 in a game that everybody thought were supposed to win. And it's suddenly looking like the Giants will never lose another baseball game. At least not this year.
Anyway, it's now 6-0 in the sixth inning. This is crazy.
