Hunter Pence launched a solo homer in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Pence, who was moved down to the sixth spot in the lineup, took Adam Wainwright deep with a mammoth shot over the left-field bullpen in the second inning to pull the Giants to within one run, but that's as close as they got. It was his lone hit on the night, but he'll take it after he entered the game batting just .161/.188/.161 this postseason. Pablo Sandoval also tacked on a late homer for the Giants.
