Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.
This was an annihilation. A few fun statistics of note from the 12-3 win: The Giants collected nine extra-base hits in the contest, with only Angel Pagan failing to pick up an extra-base knock among regular batters. Included in that barrage, four triples (two by Brandon Crawford). Seven players finished with multiple hits. For his part, Pence connected for a solo home run in the fifth inning, going back-to-back with Buster Posey. This season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .294/.364/.463 with 13 homers and 56 RBI over 374 at-bats. Sep 28 - 1:39 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and scored four times in a big win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Pence has missed a lot of games this year due to injury but has played well when on the field. That is a common theme when good players get up into their thirties. Pence has a .293 batting average with 11 homers, 48 runs scored and 47 RBI in 317 at-bats.

Hunter Pence went 4-for-5 with two doubles and four runs scored in the Giants' 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Pence and Brandon Belt both reached base five times in the game while batting fifth and sixth for the Giants. Maybe the Giants probably would have had an easier time of it tonight if they weren't batting their third- and second-best hitters fifth and sixth, but at least they did eke out the 12-inning victory. Pence has seven hits the last two days, raising his average to .287.

Hunter Pence homered for the second consecutive game, but it wasn't enough for the Giants to overcome the Cubs on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

His solo shot with two outs in the seventh inning was the club's first hit against Jon Lester on the afternoon and pulled the Giants to within a run at 2-1, that's as close as they would come though. After struggling for weeks in his return from the disabled list, Pence's bat has shown signs of life over the last couple of days which is certainly a very welcomed sight for fantasy owners and Giants fans alike.
