Xavier Nady began the comeback earlier in the ninth with a pinch-hit solo homer against Padres closer Huston Street (2-1) that tied the game at 5-5.
Then, after Francisco Peguero reached with an infield hit, Pence pounded a Street pitch over the wall in the decisive blow for the National League West champions.
Sergio Romo collected his 13th save of the season, nailing down a victory for Shane Loux (1-0).
Chase Headley, Logan Forsythe Yasmani Grandal all homered for the Padres.
