One of the clubhouse leaders for the defending World Series champions, the quirky Pence has played in 383 consecutive games — the longest active streak in the majors — since the Giants traded for him in July 2012. He hit .277 with 20 homers and 74 RBIs last year.
Pence was hit by a pitch from the Cubs’ Corey Black and went to first base before being removed for a pinch-runner.
“It didn’t look good,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “You hate to see it, but these things do happen. Guys work so hard to get ready.”
X-rays showed Pence has a non-displaced fracture in his left forearm.
