GLENDALE — At this point in his 15-year Major League Baseball career, Mark Loretta’s job description has been simplified for the most part to watching from the dugout and staying ready, waiting for his chance to affect a game with his bat. Easier said than done, particularly when the former St. Francis High standout has been sitting on the bench for the better part of nine innings, as was the case in Thursday’s second game of...

On the strength of a feet-first slide across homeplate by Freddy Sanchez, the San Francisco Giants are a victory away from advancing past the National League Division Series. Sanchez delivered a two-out single in the top of the ninth and, after the Giants tied the game, the former Glendale Community College prodigy came around on an error to score the game-winning run in San Francisco's 3-2 win over the host Atlanta Braves in the third game of the NLDS. With the win, the Giants take a 2-1 series lead into Monday's game at Atlanta.

With the game all but over, the Milwaukee Brewers called on Glendale Community College product Marco Estrada to pitch the eighth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game Three of the National League Division Series. Estrada came in with his team down, 8-1, but didn't let it get any worse. The former Vaquero faced four batters -- Arizona's No. 6, 7, 8 and 9 hitters. Estrada struck out Chris Young and surrendered a single to Ryan Roberts. He bounced back and struck out Gerardo Parra on four pitches, before getting John McDonald to hit an easy grounder to first baseman Prince Fielder to send the game into the ninth inning.

GLENDALE — Although it had to wait until his second career postseason game, San Francisco Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez achieved a couple of big postseason firsts on Friday night. The former Glendale Community College player notched his first playoff hit and scored his first run during Game Two of the National League Division Series at AT&T Park when he singled on a softly-hit ball to shallow left field in the first inning and crossed the plate later in the frame after Pat Burrell connected on a three-run home run. Burrell's blast wouldn't be enough to lift the Giants to a win, however, as the Atlanta Braves rallied for three runs in the top of the eighth inning to tie the game and won it, 5-4, on an 11th-inning solo home run by Rick Ankiel.

GLENDALE — It wasn't the type of postseason debut that Freddy Sanchez had planned, but what the San Francisco Giants second baseman couldn't do at the plate, pitcher Tim Lincecum did with his arm. Sanchez, a former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout, went hitless in four plate appearances in San Francisco's 1-0 home victory against the Atlanta Braves in the first game of the National League Division Series on Thursday night....

GLENDALE — Though Freddy Sanchez, like most of his teammates, struggled with the bat throughout the bulk of the National League Division Series for the San Francisco Giants against the Atlanta Braves, the former Glendale Community College standout can look ahead to another playoff series. While Sanchez batted .125 in four games, it didn't stop the Giants from winning the series in four games. Sanchez went hitless in four at-bats on Monday night in San Francisco's 3-2 come-from-behind road victory.

The right-handed starter has been sidelined since Aug. 7 with a fractured right fibula, and has spent the last two months on the Rockies? 60-day disabled list. Eligible to return Oct. 7, Colorado?s sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Division Series had raised the possibility of Hirsh continuing his season in the NLCS, according to mlb.com.
