Now That's How to do Opening Day!

The early part of the San Francisco Giants home opener against the hated LA Dodgers didn't look that good, as the Dodgers came in having swept their own initial three-game series and not having yet allowed a run. The Dodgers were setting their eyes on an all-time record for consecutive innings at the start of a season without having given up a run. Fittingly for a rivalry game, the Giants broke that up, and then went on a tear, hitting the ball all over the place, including a grand slam by Hunter Pence, and going on to defeat the Dodgers 12-6. And that in the notoriously pitcher-friendly AT&T Park Emperor Norton Field.

That's a nice way to start the home season.
