|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|

(5/7/13) Although the Giants didn't win, outfielder Hunter Pence had a good game against his former team Monday vs. the Phillies. Pence homered, doubled, scored twice and finished 3 for 3 in a 6-2 loss.
"Take him out of the lineup and it would have been a really good day," winning pitcher Cliff Lee said. "He was tough for me today. He's got it figured out right now."
Pence is off to a torrid start to begin May. He's hit safely in five May appearances, batting .500 (10 for 20) with two home runs, four doubles and six RBI. Pence has been locked in for a few weeks, batting .360 with a .640 slugging percentage in his last 12 games, raising his season average from .256 to .297.

(5/5/13) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence provided all of the offense for his team on Sunday night against the Dodgers. He went 2 for 4 with four RBI in the 4-3 win.
The 30-year-old plated a run when he reached on a fielder's choice in his first at-bat before doubling home Marco Scutaro in the third inning. In the fifth, he drove in two more with another double.
Pence has hit safely in seven of his past eight games and is batting .324 (11 for 34) with one homer and eight RBI during that span.

(4/24/13) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence went 3 for 5 with a run scored Tuesday against Arizona.
The outfielder doubled for the third time and is now hitting .277/.318/.458. Concerns about his power playing at home in San Francisco seem a bit overblown in the early going: He has three doubles and two home runs in 11 home games with a .500 slugging percentage.
|Hunter Pence comes up big for Giants|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/14/13) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence made his presence felt in the late stages of Sunday's contest against the Cubs.
Pence took reliever Shawn Camp deep for a solo home run in the ninth inning to tie the game. He reached base four times as he finished 3 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in a 10-7 victory in extras.
"He's doing things that we knew he could do," manager Bruce Bochy said after the game. "He's seeing the ball better. He looks good up there, and it feels like he's got better balance at the plate."
Pence is hitting .288/.327/.538 with four home runs and eight RBI through 52 at-bats.

Hit Parade for Week 8
Some heavy hitters are finally starting to return to form and good health, leaving owners with many tough decisions. Our Scott White looks at all of the streaks and matchups in his latest Hit Parade.
Blue Jays crush Giants for fourth straight win
J.P. Arencibia and Adam Lind each hit two-run home runs, Ramon Ortiz won for the first time since 2011 and the Toronto Blue Jays won their season-high fourth straight game Wednesday night, beating the San Francisco Giants 11-3.
Melky helps dominant Dickey, Jays beat old team
R.A. Dickey snapped a four-start winless streak, Melky Cabrera had four hits against his former team and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the San Francisco Giants 10-6 on Tuesday night.
|In 2011, a .314 batting average helped place Hunter Pence among the top 12 outfielders in both standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head formats, but owners who banked on a repeat got shortchanged in 2012. As uncharacteristically high as his average was the year before, Pence's .253 mark from last season was distinctly un-Pence-like. The former Astro and Phillie typically has average contact and power skills, and that should good enough to ensure him an average around .280, but a career-high 145 strikeouts helped to sink his batting average. While his average has fluctuated, Pence's peripheral stats, like strikeout rate and Isolated Power (the rate at which he gets extra bases), have been remarkably steady, so he is a strong candidate to rebound. Pence is also very durable, as he has missed no more than eight games in any of the last five seasons. That adds up to a lot of plate appearances, which gives Pence some extra value in points leagues. So while he doesn't possess tremendous power or speed, Pence does enough things well to be a top 40 outfielder. (Updated 12/7/12)|
