Last night the Giants were in a bit of a squeeze. After giving up a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs and the tying run on second base and the go ahead run on first, Pablo Sandoval came up to bat. The reason I love this?? Pablo’s nick name is Kung Fu Panda.
Pablo had a rough game, going 3-5 and finidng himself 4 pitches in at a 2-2 count. In the 7th inning while running to 3rd on a possible triple he stubbed his toe and fell face first in the base path. It was scary because we all thought he was hurt. He got tagged out and got up to walk to the dugout. Luckily he was fine.
Towards the end of the game the Giants’ mechanics really went downhill. They were missing easy plays which lead to the 7-6 situation in the 9th inning. Thankfully though, they battled on. Fighting 2 outs and a pitcher’s count Kung Fu Panda knocks one yard and that’s the game! 9-7 GIANTS!!!!
Oh and it was also Panda’s first career knock off yard ball. 🙂
