SAN FRANCISCO—Not to be outdone, the San Francisco Giants followed in their arch-rival's footsteps and took advantage of the Philadelphia Phillies fire sale as well.

Hunter Pence, OF.
Tuesday morning, the Giants acquired all-star outfielder Hunter Pence for outfielder Nate Schierholtz and two prospects.

Pence is batting .271 with 17 home runs and 59 RBIs.

The move comes two days after the Giants were swept by the Dodgers and lost sole possession of first place.

With Pence joining the lineup, and Pablo Sandoval expected back in a few weeks, the race for the NL West title will surely come down to the wire.
