Giants | Angel Pagan cites patience for hot start

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 11:18:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan said his biggest problem as a hitter in his first seven seasons was a lack of patience. He said he's learned to become more patient at the plate, and he's also trusting his hands more. "In this game, if you fall for the pitcher's game, he's going to get you out a lot," Pagan said. "When you're patient and wait for your pitch things can change drastically and you can get some good numbers." He is 45-for-127 (.354) with 11 doubles, two triples, three home runs and nine walks since returning last August from injury.

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 16:40:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan doubled, singled and scored twice Tuesday, April 8, to extend his hitting streak to eight games to begin the season.
