Gabe Kapler, the Giants head coach, has backed his third baseman Pablo Sandoval ahead of their match with the Rookies. 
"You have to get to a winning situation, and the only way to do that sometimes is to use a weapon and know that he's capable of going behind the plate if you absolutely need him to," Kapler said.

"It wouldn't be our best defense, but we know that he's available in an emergency and he can win the game with his swing. That's one thing that we know about Pablo, and we really wanted to give him the opportunity to do that."
