The San Francisco Giants, winners of 14 of their past 20 games, have been on a roll over the last few weeks. So is right fielder Hunter Pence, who’s hitting .360 over that span.
A pitch low and away by Randall Delgado started the series of events, which continued with Hunter Pence throwing his bat at the ball. The ball goes behind Delgado up the middle, towards second baseman Chris Owings. However, Owings was unable to field the ball because it hit second base and bounced past him, allowing Angel Pagan to score the first run of the game.
Of course the Giants went on to win 6-2, because scoring your first run in that fashion is probably a good omen.
