Hunter Pence grand slam highlights Giants' win over Dodgers

BY foxsports • April 7, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Hunter Pence hit a grand slam in the eighth, Joe Panik drove in three runs and keyed San Francisco's comeback, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-6 in their home opener Thursday.

The Dodgers pitchers' 31-inning scoreless streak to start the season ended in the fifth, one inning shy of the 1963 St. Louis Cardinals' record to begin a year.

Chris Heston (1-0) worked the sixth in relief of Jake Peavy for the victory as San Francisco erased a 4-0 deficit to the delight of a sellout crowd announced at 41,940.

Bruce Bochy bested his former outfielder and now-Dodgers manager Dave Roberts in their first matchup.

In the fifth, Los Angeles finally gave up its first runs of 2016 and got to Alex Wood (0-1).
