Pablo Sandoval to DH in Game 3
With the Series shifting to the home of the American League champion Texas Rangers, Giants manager Bruce Bochy had to decide who would DH. While Sandoval struggled through a down year, batting .268 with 13 home runs and 63 RBIs, using him will not disrupt a lineup that has been working. The Giants scored 20 runs in the first two games at home for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Series.
Sandoval -- nicknamed "Kung Fu Panda" -- has played in five games this postseason, making two starts in the NL Division Series against the Atlanta Braves and two more in the NLCS against the Philadelphia Phillies.
