SAN FRANCISCO–Before Andrew McCutchen produced a gift for San Francisco Giants fans, Pablo Sandoval had a gift for McCutchen.

The offering? A bottle of 212 VIP Carolina Herrera cologne.

The cost? It retails for around $60.

The memories? Priceless.

After McCutchen started the season 2-for-24 at the plate, Sandoval walked up to the Giants right fielder in the clubhouse and told him “You’re my pick.”

As Sandoval’s “pick,” McCutchen wore the trendy men’s fragrance onto the field for Saturday afternoon’s showdown against the rival Dodgers.

Six hits later, McCutchen might need to buy some stock.

The former face of the Pittsburgh Pirates franchise endeared himself to San Francisco on Saturday night, blasting a three-run walkoff home run to cap off an unforgettable 14-inning victory over the Dodgers.

After the Giants fell behind 5-4 in the top of the 14th inning, singles from Kelby Tomlinson and Joe Panik preceded McCutchen’s seventh plate appearance of the night.

Dodger reliever Wilmer Font, the 24th Los Angeles player to appear in Saturday’s game, threw McCutchen a fastball and a curveball.

Those two pitches were all Font had at his disposal.

The Giants outfielder took note, and based on a mix of scouting reports and live experience, concluded what he needed to do.

“I was just trying to fight him off, fight him off and fight him off until I got comfortable,” McCutchen said.

On the 12th pitch of the at-bat, McCutchen proved he was comfortable.

It was the longest at-bat of McCutchen’s professional career, and the latest a Giants player has walked off the Dodgers in a game since 1957.

From an RBI double in the first inning to his closing salvo at the end of the night, McCutchen reminded the Giants why they worked so hard to acquire him from the Pirates this offseason.

And on Sunday morning, Sandoval was happy to remind McCutchen who deserves the credit for his “Welcome to San Francisco” moment.

Sitting in the upper left hand corner of McCutchen’s locker, there was a barely-used bottle of 212 VIP Carolina Herrera cologne.

It will be sprayed again on Sunday.

“Why not?” McCutchen asked.

Look good, smell good, play good, as they say.
