Analysis: It was the first game since 2014 in which Pence batted leadoff as Giants manager Bruce Bochy continues to push buttons in hopes of getting his struggling offense on track. It didn't change much as San Francisco scored just twice and had eight hits, but Pence had a second straight two-hit game so maybe he'll see more time atop the order.

Analysis: Pence is 10 for 24 (.417) with a home run and five RBIs during the streak, which has raised his early-season average from .261 to .340. The veteran outfielder is 9 for 19 in home games thus far.
Apr. 9 7:19 PM PT8:19 PM MT9:19 PM CT10:19 PM ET22:19 ET2:19 GMT10:19 7:19 PM MST9:19 PM EST9:49 PM VEN6:19 UAE (+1)9:19 PM CT-Pence and Buster Posey hit consecutive homers for the Giants, who beat the San Diego Padres 5-3 Sunday to prevent a three-game sweep.
Analysis: The Giants play their home opener Monday against Arizona, and Pence hit .311 at AT&T Park last season compared to .270 on the road.

Analysis: Pence was a much better hitter at home than on the road last season, so it's encouraging to see him off to a 4-for-10 start away from San Francisco.
