Hunter Pence is Crazy Good… And Crazy Looking

He DOES look like a lunatic, doesn’t he? Hunter Pence swings like a loon, has crazy eyes and plays like a man possessed. And his tongue is sticking out in the picture.

But there are no style points in the box score. And a shaky Vogelsong performance put the Giants in a 4-3 hole after 4 innings, San Francisco needed a crazy rally.

Duvall’s homer gave the team the lead then Pence expanded it with a single in the 6th and a triple in the 8th. 5 relievers kept the Phillies from scoring again and the next thing you know, the Giants remain in first place.

Meanwhile the Red Sox clobbered the Blue Jays and the A’s had the night off.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
