Giants to shake up batting order


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Giants outfielder Hunter Pence may be moved to the leadoff spot for a couple games, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Following Wednesday's game, manager Bruce Bochy said Gregor Blanco would be moved from the leadoff spot, with Pence taking his place. Once Brandon Belt returns from the disabled list, he would likely hit second, behind Pence.

“I’ll probably drop [Blanco] down in the order until he gets his swing,” Bochy said. Blanco had been filling in for Angel Pagan, who has been sidelined with an injury. It's unclear whether Pence and Belt will retain their spots in the order once Pagan is able to return.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Pence, who had not hit a home run since April 22, opened the game with a two-run homer in the first inning. Though he didn't record any more extra-base hits, Pence wasn't done for the game, ultimately finishing 4 for 5 with three RBI and a pair of runs scored.

Pence had just one RBI in May entering play, so this was something of a breakout. He is hitting .273/.348/.416 in 161 at-bats this season.

"Against a left-handed pitcher, like (Tuesday vs. Wade Miley), Hunter Pence will hit second and Belt will go down in the five- or six-hole. That's the plan until we get Marco Scutaro back."
