Former San Francisco Giants fan favorite Hunter Pence was so happy to see the Dodgers lose Game Four that he bought a round of shots for everyone.

Over the course of his 14 years in the majors, former San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence became a fan favorite. From his being in constant motion to his looking like Marv from Home Alone, Pence was a beloved character on the diamond.

Even now that he has retired, he remains beloved by Giants fans. Of course, doing things such as buying a round of shots after the Dodgers lost Game Four helps Pence retain his stature.

As Pence spent eight years with the Giants, it is not a surprise that he would delight in the Dodgers’ misery. That is especially the case given the surprising way they lost – with a pair of errors and a base hit to someone who is essentially the last player on the Rays World Series roster.

light. More Giants. Pence officially retires

Even without that connection, it would be understandable that Pence would be excited. The ending of Game Four was one of the most bizarre, unbelievable moments in World Series history. If anything, Pence’s celebration was understated, especially compared to the always stoic Alex Rodriguez.

Pence retired just a few weeks ago after being released by the Giants. Over the course of his career, he posted a .279/.334/.461 batting line, hitting 244 homers and stealing 120 bases. He was a four time All Star, finishing as high as 11th in the NL MVP vote.

He was also a key part of several playoff teams. Pence was a part of the 2012 and 2014 World Series winning Giants teams, so he knows a thing or two about big games. He has also shined on the biggest stage before, producing an impressive .444/.500/.667 batting line during the 2014 World Series.
