As weird as it may sound, lucky cowboy boots could help explain how the San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval has turned things around this season.

Sandoval was below the Mendoza line through the early part of May, but he has bumped that average up substantially recently. He has hit .429 with four home runs and 11 RBI during his current six-game hitting streak.

The hot streak could be linked to cowboy boots. Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner gave the third baseman two pairs of bootsone for the dugout to bring good luck and one to wear.

Sandoval went 2-for-4 on both Sunday and Monday, so he should take good care of the boots to keep the luck going.

At 32-19, the Giants own the best record in Major League Baseball. San Francisco fans have to be hoping that the boots turn into something as special as the beards the Boston Red Sox sported on their way to the World Series title last season.
