The Giants won their season opener at Milwaukee today by a score of 12-3. They banged out 15 hits including four home runs. In the eighth, with two out, Span, Panik and Posey went yard back to back to back, the first time that had been accomplished on Opening Day since 1997!
Meanwhile, Bumgarner, who notched the win, had a bit of a rough outing, yielding 3 runs over the minimum 5 innings for a starting ERA of 5.40. More troubling, he walked 5 while striking out 6 and serving up two round-trippers
The Giants left seven runners in scoring position but still managed a RISP of 4-for-9, a respectable .444 average.
Span knocked in 5 of the runs and Duffy collected another 4.
All in all, a good offensive performance, albeit against the puny Brewers.
