Hunter Pence's fifth rehab game with Triple-A Sacramento went quite well.
The three-time All-Star collected three hits Thursday night, including a two-run blast in the third inning of the River Cats' 6-5 win in Las Vegas.
Pence began his assignment one week ago and is hitting .294 (5-for-17) with two home runs, five RBI and two walks over 20 plate appearances.
The 32-year old right-fielder sustained a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm after getting hit by a pitch during spring training on March 5.
The original recovery timetable was 6-8 weeks, but it's taken longer than expected.
The injury snapped Pence's MLB-leading streak of 383 consecutive games played.
He was one of four players to appear in all 162 games last season, starting 161 of them.
Pence hit .277 with 20 home runs and 74 RBI a year ago, and over 17 playoff games he batted .333 with eight RBI and eight walks.
