Grand slam number 5

Hunter Pence hit his fifth career grand slam. It was the Giants fifth slam of the season 

It was night in which fans are thinking "Can't they save a few runs for those 2-1games?"

Well, maybe it means that having Pence back is going to make a difference. They are 14-7 in games he's played.

Here's the top of the story --

SAN FRANCISCO -- Hunter Pence's grand slam Friday night helped the San Francisco Giants propel Cole Hamels to one of the worst defeats of his career as the reigning World Series champions routed the Philadelphia Phillies, 15-2.
The Giants, who broke their AT&T Park record with 22 hits and set a season high in runs, established a 2015 best with eight runs in the fourth inning, as seven consecutive batters reached base with one out before Pence launched a 1-1 fastball onto the right-field arcade.
"It was time for us to break out at some point," said manager Bruce Bochy, whose Giants scored 13 runs in their previous seven games and had 22 hits in the preceding four games. "It looked like the day off [Thursday] helped the guys."
