The San Francisco Giants third basemen, Pablo Sandoval, made a catch with a flavor that will last. A Padres' hitter launched a pop fly that was almost out of play, but the Panda came into rescue it.
Sandoval's mouth was full the whole time with a bubble gum, and a fan in the stands almost got a mouth full of Sandoval's cleats.
Having your at-bat end on a play like that must be more upsetting than having gum on your shoe.
What a catch! Not only could I have not made the catch, I can't even blow a bubble.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Baseball Writer Marco Scutaro is no castoff or misfit. Not even close.
It just so happens he is having a major impact as part of San Francisco's run into the playoffs - the 2012 version of Cody Ross, if you will. Scutaro does it all: reliable defense, timely hitting, mentoring of younger teammates.
The Giants plucked Ross off waivers...
