Giants skipper Bruce Bochy has elected to move Hunter Pence back up to the fifth spot in the lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS on Friday.

The struggling outfielder was bumped down to the sixth spot for Thursday's Game 4, and responded by blasting a solo home run off Adam Wainwright. That means the Giants are back to their regular lineup, with Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro, Pablo Sandoval, Buster Posey, Pence, Brandon Belt, Gregor Blanco, Brandon Crawford and Barry Zito looking to stave off elimination and live to fight another day.
