It was a 3-run homer to give the Giants a 9-6 lead, which capped a 5-run 8th inning. Yes, we all know Pence isn’t off to a great start in a Giants uniform.

I’m sure the big homer yesterday is a big monkey off his back. That homer was the first one hit by a Giant at AT&T Park other than Posey since June 29th. All Star outfielder Melky Cabrera (.348 AVG) continues to do what he’s been doing all seaso...
