Giants outfielder Hunter Pence strained his right hamstring in the fourth inning of last night’s loss to the Braves. He’s been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Pence will be undergoing an MRI today. Manager Bruce Bochy said that Pence’s injury is similar to the one that kept him out of action for five games at the end of May, but you never know with hamstrings. Pence is hitting .298/.375/.486 with seven homers and 36 driven in on the year.
