20-20 FOR PENCE?…Pence is just one home run shy of 20 for the season…if he reaches the 20 HR plateau it would mark the €first time in his career to hit at least 20 home runs while steal 20 or more bases in a single season…the only players to achieve this feat so far this season are Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez (26 HRs, 21 SBs) and Los Angeles’ Mike Trout (23 HRs, 32 SBs).
