Hunter Pence launched a two-run homer and reached base four times in Tuesday's World Series Game 1 win over the Royals.

The Giants first dented the scoreboard on Pablo Sandoval's first-inning double, but Pence provided the big blow with a laser to center field that cleared the wall for a two-run shot. He later added a double and also drew a pair of walks. Every player in the Giants' lineup had a hit save for Travis Ishikawa, who was lifted after just one at-bat.

Hunter Pence went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants dropped Game 2 of the NLCS to the Cardinals on Sunday in St. Louis.

Oct 13 - 12:02 AM

Hunter Pence is not in the Giants starting lineup on Saturday.

That's newsworthy due to the fact that Pence hasn't missed a ballgame since the 2012 season. You'd have to imagine Bruce Bochy will get him a pinch-hit appearance to keep his consecutive game streak alive, which currently sits at 381 games.
Sep 27 - 1:41 PM

Hunter Pence drilled his 20th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Padres on Saturday.

With the Giants trailing by three runs, Pence attempted to help spark a ninth-inning rally, leading off the frame with a solo shot against Andrew Cashner, but the comeback attempt fell just short. Pence has been quiet at the dish lately, but has overall had a fine season, hitting .288/.342/.463 with 73 home runs, 13 stolen bases, and 105 runs scored.
Sep 20 - 11:37 PM

Hunter Pence hit a three-run home run on Monday.

The first inning, three-run shot off of Rockies' starter Franklin Morales was Pence's only hit of the game. He finished the contest 1-for-4. The bomb gave him twenty homers for the season to go with 68 RBI. He's now got a 14-game hitting streak working. Pence is slashing .296/.349/.488.
Sep 1 - 9:44 PM

Pence smacked two doubles and a triple in the win, giving him 10 triples on the year. He's up to 95 runs scored with the three-run effort, second-most in the National League. Pence is also working on a 13-game hitting streak, raising his overall line to .294/.346/.477.
Aug 31 - 9:40 PM

Aug 30 - 1:40 AM

Hunter Pence went 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored as the Giants beat the Rockies 3-0 on Tuesday.

This was one of fantasy baseball's best matchups of the evening, and it cashed. Pence came into the game 18-for-37 with four round-trippers and three doubles in his last 10 games against Colorado, and he'd gone 6-for-21 in his career with two homers and two doubles versus Rockies' starter Jorge De La Rosa. The 31-year-old is slashing .286/.339/.468 and is on pace for 22 homers, 72 RBI, 110 runs and 14 steals.
Aug 27 - 12:56 AM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored as the Giants thumped the Cubs 8-3 on Wednesday.

Pence was one of four Giants batters with multi-hit games in the laugher. The 31-year-old is hitting .284 and is on pace for 22 homers, 70 RBI, 109 runs and 14 steals. Just another strong fantasy campaign from a perennially underrated player.
Aug 21 - 12:52 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Pence got the scoring going with a two-run shot in the third. He then added an RBI double in the fifth before capping off his day with a solo shot in the ninth. It's his first multi-homer game of the season, as he's now up to 15 longballs for the year. Buster Posey also had a big day for the Giants, going 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI.
Aug 3 - 3:57 PM

Hunter Pence drove in three runs in Friday's win over the Mets.

Pence had an RBI ground out in the second inning and later added a two-run triple to the right-center field gap in the seventh. He also drew a walk and scored a run in the game. The 31-year-old has remained a useful fantasy outfielder this season, but he's currently on pace to fall well short of his home run and RBI totals from last year.
Aug 1 - 9:40 PM

Hunter Pence was 0-for-3 with a walk until clearing the bases with a double to break a scoreless tie in the top of the ninth in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Pence has killed his former team in this series, entering the night with six hits in 13 at-bats. He now has 6 RBI in the series and can help the Giants wrap up a four-game sweep on Thursday afternoon. Pence has been among the most productive hitters in baseball, slashing .304/.361/.479 with 13 home runs, 41 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
Jul 23 - 11:14 PM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a stolen base against the Phillies on Monday.

Perhaps not in the traditional sense, since he's still not drawing walks, but Pence has embraced the leadoff role, hitting .339 with 11 runs scored in 14 games at the top of the lineup. His overall average is up to .302. If he can stay there, it'd be his third .300 season, along with his rookie year of 2007 and 2011. Oddly enough, he's never finished a season with an average in between .283 and .314.
Jul 21 - 11:07 PM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and a run scored as the Giants topped the A's 5-2 on Wednesday.

Pence is 36-for-105 (.343) over his last 25 games. This is his second consecutive multi-hit game against the A's, which is no surprise from a player who went 5-for-8 with a homer against Oakland in San Francisco last year. The outfielder is batting .302/.361/.478 and is on pace for 21 homers and 116 RBI.
