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. Jul 10 - 1:25 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with three runs scored as the Giants topped the Padres 5-3 on Sunday.

Pence fulfilled the part of the leadoff hitter on Sunday, swatting two singles and a double and scoring all three times he reached base. The three-hit day also served to raise his average above the .300 plateau, as he's now batting .301/.360/.472 with 64 runs scored. The outfielder is second in the NL in runs scored, behind on Troy Tulowitzki.
Jul 6 - 11:10 PM

Hunter Pence is moving to leadoff for the Giants.

Gregor Blanco is in a bad slump, so manager Bruce Bochy will try a different look at the top of his lineups. This should result in more runs for Pence, but probably fewer RBI. He is batting .295/.355/.467 through 369 plate appearances, primarily as the Giants' No. 2 hitter.
Jul 3 - 9:20 AM

Hunter Pence finished 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored in the Giants' 5-0 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Interestingly, Pence's batting average has dropped two points to .295 during his current six-game hitting streak. Because he's hit out of the No. 2 hole, Pence's RBI opportunities are limited. The tradeoff is that he ranks second in the National League with 60 runs scored. On pace for 21 homers, 61 RBI and 14 steals, Pence has been a steady fantasy contributor all season.
Jul 2 - 1:05 AM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Pence has been a hitting machine of late, as Sunday's two-hit day was his seventh multi-hit game in his last nine. He's also scored 10 runs in that span, giving him 56 runs scored for the year. That mark is third-most in the National League to go with a strong .302/.369/.483 line.
Jun 23 - 12:09 AM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-5 with his 10th home run of the season against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Pence took White Sox starter John Danks deep to left in the first inning, his second home run in his last three games. The homer gives him 52 runs scored on the season, good for third-most in the National League. Overall, the 31-year-old is batting .299/.367/.480 for the year.
Jun 18 - 12:35 AM

Hunter Pence reached base five times in Thursday's win over the Nationals, going 3-for-3 with two walks.

Unfortunately, all of that goodness resulted in just one run scored and no RBI. Despite performing a little better than he did last year, Pence is currently at 70 runs scored+RBI through 68 games (last year, he came in at 190). He'd have a little more fantasy value batting third or fourth than he does hitting second, where RBI opportunities have been very limited.
Jun 12 - 7:09 PM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 and scored the winning run on Michael Morse's ninth-inning single as the Giants beat the Mets 5-4 on Saturday.

Pence doubled in Angel Pagan to tie the game against Jenrry Mejia in the ninth before coming around to score on Morse's only hit of the ninth. It was Pence's eighth three-hit game of the season, as he raised his average to .293. He's not getting as many chances to drive in runs now that he's the No. 2 hitter in the Giants lineup, but he's scored 45 times in 63 games. That puts him in a tie with Giancarlo Stanton for third place behind Troy Tulowitzki (50) and Paul Goldschmidt (46) in the NL.
Jun 8 - 2:11 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Pence provided the Giants' only consistent source of offense, homering in the first and doubling in the third, ultimately finishing a triple short of the cycle. Pence's OPS fell to .700 as recently as May 12, but with Tuesday's effort, it's now at .839. He has eight home runs, 22 RBI, seven stolen bases, and a .293/.363/.476 slash line on the season.
Jun 3 - 10:26 PM

Hunter Pence went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Friday in a win over the Cardinals.

His three-run blast was the big blow in a four-run second inning against Adam Wainwright. Pence has only knocked in 21 runs through 56 games, but he has made up for it with seven home runs, seven stolen bases, and 42 runs scored.
May 31 - 12:47 AM

Hunter Pence went 3-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

The homer was his sixth of the season, a solo shot off Twins starter Ricky Nolasco in the third inning. It's shaping up to be another successful year for the outfielder, who's hitting .294/.369/.472 with six stolen bases. He's somewhat quietly also scored 38 runs, second-most in the National League.
May 25 - 8:34 PM

Hunter Pence went 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI to lead the Giants to a 10-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Pence's third homer of the season came as the second batter of the game. He entered with just 10 RBI all season, a product of him primarily batting second in the Giants lineup. Still, he hasn't been the same kind of power hitter he was last year, when he finished with 27 homers.
May 14 - 7:45 PM

Hunter Pence had three hits and scored four times against the Pirates on Monday.

It's the first time in his Giants career and fourth time overall that Pence has scored four runs in a game. For the season, Pence has 23 runs scored, but just nine RBI, a function of him often batting second in the Giants lineup. Obviously, more RBI would be nice, but he's getting extra at-bats and steal opportunities batting second, which should prove to be a fine tradeoff.
May 6 - 12:57 AM

Hunter Pence went 0-for-4 on Saturday to drop his average to .188.

Pence has swiped four bases in the early going, but he has just one homer and three RBI in 69 at-bats. He's part of the reason the Giants have lost their last three games by a combined score of 7-3.
Apr 19 - 11:28 PM

Hunter Pence clobbered his first home run of the year in Sunday night’s loss to the Dodgers.

His solo blast off Zack Greinke in the sixth inning was his only hit in four at-bats on the evening. He’s off to a bit of a slow start at the dish this season, slashing .138/.219/.310 with two RBI in his first seven contests.
