San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval returned
to the lineup for yesterday’s Opening Day contest against the Los Angeles

Sandoval accounted for two of the Giants’ four hits in
yesterday’s 4-0 shutout loss to the Dodgers.
Sandoval had been dealing with an elbow injury that had sidelined
him in the middle of March. He appeared to be recovering before suffering a
setback over the weekend. His status for the start of the regular season was in
question, but he was able to suit up and will continue to play through the elbow
Over 442 plate appearances for the Giants last season,
Sandoval hit .283/.342/.447 with 25 doubles and 12 home runs. The 26-year-old –
who missed time last season after breaking his hamate bone – owns a career
batting line of .303/.353/.490 over parts of five seasons in the majors.

At the end of last year Madison Bumgarner was not his normal self as he struggled through inconsistent mechanics. He spent all offseason and spring working on it and last night that hard work paid dividends.
Over at Bay Area Sports Guy, I took a look at how good Bumgarner was last night:
Bumgarner cruised through eight innings, giving up just a pair of doubles, walking none...
Opening Day didn’t go the way San Francisco Giants fans had hoped for, but guess what?!?! It’s just game 1 of 162! The Giants are back at it tonight against the Dodgers, and Madison Bumgarner will try to get the Giants their first win of the 2013 season.
Matt Cain started his first career Major League Opening Day, and it didn’t end like he hoped it would. However, he did pitch...
The San Francisco Giants have invited Brian Wilson to re-join the team April 7. Kinda.Before the World Champs hit the field Sunday to take on the St. Louis Cardinals, they will be presented with their 2012 World Series rings. And, well…they’d like the bearded one to be part of the celebration. According to Henry Schulman, the team’s senior vice president of communications...
As the 2013 Major League Baseball season gets underway, we step off the diamond for a moment and into the financial records of each of the 30 teams in the league.
We are taking a look at the salaries each team has on its records as of April 1, a joke to some folks but Opening Day to fans and teams alike. Obviously, with trades, cuts, call-ups and whatever else these numbers are...
When you hear the saying, “We’re golden,” it’s not often that you think of a team uniform in Major League Baseball. There have been highlights of it (the Nationals come to mind), but not to the extent about to unfold.

Losing a fly ball in the sun is part of afternoon baseball. Sunglasses help, but there’s only so much they can do. As Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence could tell you, they do even less when you don’t use them to cover your eyes.
During the sixth inning of Philadelphia’s 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, Pence was unable to track down a shallow fly...
The San Francisco Giants came into today looking for revenge against the hated rival Los Angeles Dodgers and they got exactly that. After starting off the season being shutout 4-0 by Clayton Kershaw, San Francisco sent 23-year-old Madison Bumgarner to the hill and he delivered in a big way.
Bumgarner (1-0) shutout the Dodgers offense for 8 innings while only allowing 2 base runners...
It's like stepping in a large pile of deja vu on the sidewalk. All over again. On April 1, 2013, the San Francisco Giants lost their 6th season opener in the last ten years.
Will anything get this off my sneakers?
Before the Giants met the newly diamond-encrusted, gold leaf festooned Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday at Chavez Ravine word on the streets was, SF's gonna...
The parity of the Giants-Dodgers rivalry is one of the few ways that some national writers will admit that the west coast rivalry beats out that east coast one.
I still hate seeing the Dodgers win, however.
Props to Clayton Kershaw, however. That guy is an amazing pitcher. Nothing but respect to him as a player, but I’ll still always boo him. Dirty Dodger…
