Alex Trebek Roasts Hunter Pence, San Francisco Giants on 'Jeopardy'

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistNovember 9, 2017

The San Francisco Giants have won three World Series titles in the last eight years. Alex Trebek is still not impressed.

On Tuesday night's Tournament of Champions installment of Jeopardy!, Tim Aten recalled receiving support from Giants outfielder Hunter Pence on Twitter following last year's appearance on the game show.

Trebek was not exactly star struck when Aten referenced Pence.

"Yeah," Trebek said when Aten confirmed Pence winning the World Series with the Giants. "OK, but not this year."

Finishing at 64-98, San Francisco tied the Detroit Tigers for MLB's worst record. Pence hit a mundane .260/.315/.385 with a career-worst 0.7 WAR, per FanGraphs.

He conceded defeat to the Jeopardy! host.

Like the Giants, Aten ended the evening in last place
