SAN FRANCISCO -- Hunter Pence, who has lost his role as an everyday outfielder, savored some redemption Sunday by stroking a bases-loaded, two-run double in the 11th inning that gave the Giants a 3-2 triumph over the Padres at AT&T Park.
The Padres had forged ahead in their half of the 11th. With the score tied at 1, Manuel Margot drew a leadoff walk from Giants reliever Reyes Moronta. A groundout and a wild pitch moved Margot to third base, placing him in position to score on Cory Spangenberg's single, which Giants first baseman Brandon Belt dove for and deflected.

Pence rolled an 0-2 pitch past first base, chasing home McCutchen and Posey.
