Giants' Sandoval ties franchise record by reaching base in 21st consecutive postseason game
Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports / Reuters

Pablo Sandoval's first-inning single in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday carried some historical significance, as the third baseman tied Barry Bonds' San Francisco Giants record by reaching base in his 21st consecutive postseason game.

Sandoval, a two-time All-Star, last failed to reach base in a postseason game in Game 4 of the 2012 National League Division Series, when he went hitless in four at-bats against the Cincinnati Reds. 

Few players, however, boast the postseason résumé Sandoval has authored in recent years, as the 28-year-old entered Tuesday's contest against the St. Louis Cardinals with a .322/.363/.557 line through 29 career playoff games.

Bonds, incidentally, established the franchise record between 2002 and 2003, hitting .333/.576/.870 with eight home runs and 35 walks throughout a remarkable stretch that stopped at 21 games only because the Giants failed to make the postseason for the final four seasons of Bonds' career.
