Russell Martin sitting out Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

There's no indication Martin has changed course and is taking his suspension Thursday.

Hector Sanchez shows rare power


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Giants catcher Hector Sanchez has a well-deserved reputation as a light-hitting reserve, but he turned that script around with a huge performance Wednesday against the Rockies.

Sanchez, who entered the game with just six career home runs in 164 games, slugged two to help the Giants to a 12-10 win. He went deep for a solo home run to give the Giants a lead in the eighth, and then came up with a grand slam in the 11th to give the Giants the win.

He finished the game 2 for 6 with five RBI, the latter of which is a career-high total. He is now hitting .161/.206/.419 on the season.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
