And somehow, Pence might have saved his most memorable performance for after the game.
In a postgame chat with Fox's Erin Andrews that will go down as one of the more awkward World Series interviews in recent memory, Pence lived up to his quirky reputation.
Pence starts the interview by correcting Andrews, then apologizes, in this cringe-worthy exchange:
Andrews, no stranger to postgame interviews that don't go according to script, handled things well by laughing it off. But, fairly or not, she still took lots of criticism on Twitter following the exchange:
Awkward Pence-Erin Andrews exchange there. And does anyone really believe any reporter "loves" getting corrected on air?

Hopefully, for Andrews' sake, things go smoother for her for the duration of the Series. And, if the Giants do prevail, maybe she can go for round two with Buster Posey's son.
