Hello and happy Friday. We interrupt this MLB Draft content to remind you that San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is the best.

Pence and his wife, Alexis, have a company, Pineapple Labs, that sells coffee. They created a Hunter Pence-themed coffee package this week, with all proceeds going to Season of Sharing Fund, a San Francisco Chronicle charity that helps Bay Area families.

It quickly sold out, so don’t plan on making any purchases, but it’s cool and worth sharing nonetheless!


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yep.

June 12, 1998: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 5th inning off of Sterling Hitchcock, scoring Darryl Hamilton. It gave the Giants a 3-0 lead, but they would lose 10-3. It was his 15th homer of the year.

June 12, 2001: Against the Anaheim Angels, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 1st inning off of Pat Rapp. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and they would win 3-2. It was his 33rd homer of the year.

June 12, 2002: Against the Toronto Blue Jays, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 9th inning off of Cliff Politte. It gave the Giants a 6-3 lead, which was the final score. It was his 22nd homer of the year.

June 12, 2003: Against the Chicago White Sox, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 9th inning off of Bartolo Colon, scoring Ray Durham. It tied the game 4-4, and later in the inning Rich Aurilia would hit a grand slam to lead the Giants to an 8-4 win. It was Bonds’ 18th homer of the year, and his 4th straight game with a home run. It also gave him a 2-run home run that scored Durham in all 3 games of the Giants vs. White Sox series.

June 12, 2004: In the first game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 3rd inning off of Rodrigo Lopez. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and they would win 9-6. It was his 17th homer of the year.
