SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have acquired three-time All-Star infielder Freddy Sanchez from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The teams announced the deal right after the Giants beat Pittsburgh 1-0 in 10 innings Wednesday. The Pirates got minor league pitcher Tim Alderson for Sanchez.
Sanchez was the 2006 NL batting champion and should boost Giants' bid for the NL wild-card slot. He is hitting .296 with six home runs and 34 RBIs, and did not play in this week's series at San Francisco because of a tender knee.
