Hunter Pence does it his way and the Giants love him

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Hunter Pence still hears about that wacky hit, when the ball came off his bat three times in a single swing.

Pence broke the bat making contact for a key double in a 9-0 victory against St. Louis in Game 7 of the NL championship series last October.

Not that anybody's too surprised when something like that happens to Pence.

The San Francisco Giants right fielder is quirky, just plain odd if you were to poll some of his pals — like second baseman Marco Scutaro.

"He loves me," Pence cracked Monday.
