In that stretch, the third baseman is 9-for-24 with eight RBI and three runs scored. He's a streaky hitter, and Sandoval appears to be seeing the ball very well right now.

Pablo Sandoval finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Giants beat the Mets 4-3 on Monday afternoon.

Sandoval hit a two-run double to right-center field in the top of the third inning against Mets starter Dillon Gee, singled in the seventh inning off Mets reliever Jeurys Familia, and then drove in the Giants' go-ahead run in the top of the ninth against Mets closer Jenrry Mejia. It was a big day for "Kung Fu Panda" and allowed the Giants to take three of four in New York. Sandoval is batting .280/.327/.429 with 49 RBI in 109 games this season.

Pablo Sandoval's double with two outs in the top of the seventh ended Jacob deGrom's bid at a no-hitter on Saturday.

The Giants banged out 12 hits in the game, all singles. Sandoval drove in a run, his 45th RBI of the season, with a hit in the eighth inning. The RBI and runs scored were his first in seven games, and he's without an extra-base hit in that span. The third baseman is hitting .277/.326/.425 overall.
Jul 30 - 7:18 PM

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-3 in Monday's 5-0 setback against Pittsburgh.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Friday's win over the Marlins.

We don't want to say that Sandoval owns Nate Eovaldi, but he's now 8-for-11 with nine RBI against him lifetime. "Kung-Fu Panda" faded a bit earlier this month, but he's hitting .414 (12-for-29) with two homers, one double, and seven RBI over his last seven games.

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a run scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Sandoval had three singles and also walked in the game, reaching base four times. He's 10-for-24 in his last six games heading into the break. On the year, the third baseman is batting .272/.323/.428 with 11 home runs. His numbers are still down from a miserable April, and they should only get better in the second half.
Jul 13 - 9:44 PM

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three RBI against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Sandoval has slowed down in the power department after his May outburst (he hit six homers in an 11-game span), but even so, he has 11 homers on the season, leaving him just three shy of his 2013 total. He has a realistic chance of reaching 20 homers for the first time since 2011 and third time in his career.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hoping to have Pablo Sandoval (elbow) available off the bench Monday.

However, Sandoval is currently still unable to fully extend his left arm, so it seems unlikely. He remains unlikely to need a DL stint, but it's unclear when Sandoval will be ready to play third base again.
Jul 7 - 8:27 PM

Pablo Sandoval (elbow) is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

Sandoval left Saturday's game after being hit in the left elbow with a pitch and will now miss his second straight start. X-rays came back negative, but he's dealing with a bone bruise. Consider him day-to-day for now.
