The San Francisco Giants have lost seven of eight. They're 0-2 in the Hunter Pence era. In his two games, they've collected seven hits, including four in Thursday's 9-1 loss to the New York Mets.

"We've been awful this past week," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We get in these funks, they're not fun. We're in a rut right now. We're not swinging the bats. We've got to regroup here, and hopefully that's what's going to happen on the road as we go to Colorado."

Yes, it's a good time to leave the Giants' hitter-unfriendly yard.

And a good time to go to Coors Field.

The Giants open a series against the Colorado Rockies on Friday, and perhaps they're fortunate because the first game they'll face old friend Jonathan Sanchez, who has struggled with his results and his health since the Giants traded him to the Kansas City Royals for Melky Cabrera, who had three of the Giants' four hits Thursday.

Kansas City dealt him to Colorado last month for Jeremy Guthrie in a swap of pitchers with dismal records.

The Giants were 3-7 on the homestand and were shut out twice. Two other games, they scored one run.
