Giants 5, Astros 4. Barry Bonds tied the game with a three-run homer in the eighth, and the Giants manufactured the winning run with a HBP, a sacrifice, a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly. (Yahoo!)
Game log of the Giants opener.
9:15 Bonds steps in. GONE! First pitch fastball on the outer third of the plate and Bonds pulls it. 4-4. HAHA. Jimmy Williams looks pleased with himself. I love that the Astros fans CHEERED when Oswalt stayed in the game and now they're booing. Idiots.(Fog Ball)
Lawrence stingy, Nevin grand for San Diego. Padres 8, Dodgers 2. Not a good start for the Frank McCourt Era. (ESPN.com)
Craig Burley on Opening Day ("the real one, not the quasi-exhibition series between the New York Ricohs and the Tampa Bay Ricohs, or the made-for-TV hootenanny from Baltimore, or the first game for the stragglers in Florida, Arizona, Atlanta, and Seattle.") (The Hardball Times)
