As only Hunter Pence can do. MLB.com has the highlight

Pence looked off balance as the pitch came in, but he righted himself quickly for a 440-foot bomb.

The 31-year-old right fielder is batting .299/.367/.483 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI in 75 games this season for the Giants, who have a four-game lead over the Dodgers in the National League West standings.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
