DARIN ERSTAD recorded all 3 putouts in the 2nd inning, the 11th time that a centerfielder has recorded 3 putouts in an inning in a World Series game…The last was Atlanta's ANDRUW JONES on Oct. 24, 1999, Game 2, 7th inning.

JEFF KENT hit his 2nd homer of this Series in the 6th inning…Was his 4th career post-season homer.
GIANTS HOMERS: Kent's homer was San Francisco's 10th of this Series, matching 5 other clubs for the 2nd most ever in a single World Series, 2 behind the 1956 Yankees…It is the most ever by a National League club in a single series…Last team with 10 homers in a fall classic was Baltimore in 1970…That blast was the Giants' 23rd of this post-season, the most ever.
