Pill shows off his power


(2/26/2013) Giants first baseman Brett Pill is in camp this spring trying to lock up a bench role and likely helped his cause in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers. He went 2 for 5 with a pair of home runs in the 8-8 tie. Pill launched a solo shot off Brandon League in the fourth before victimizing Gregory Infante for a two-run bomb in the ninth. Pill is also seeing playing time in the outfield this spring to increase his versatility. "I think it's good to have all those [positional] options open. I think ultimately being a threat off the bench with the bat is the No. 1 priority," Pill told MLB.com. "A lot of times off the bench last year, I tried to do too much and didn't end up helping."

"I felt fine out there," Pill told reporters Saturday. "I mean, I'm never going to be Gregor Blanco, but I feel good out in left."
