San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence lost a short fly ball in the sun during the sixth inning of Monday's Opening Day game at Dodger Stadium. Although this happens to major leaguers from time to time, Pence had absolutely no excuse because he forgot to put on the sunglasses that were sitting on his cap. L.A. Dodgers second baseman Matt Ellis ended up with a double on the play, but the Dodgers did not score a run in the inning. This play by Pence isn't that surprising considering some of the goofy incidents in his past, such as coming to the plate with a doughnut on his bat and running over his third base coach while rounding third to score a run.

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.

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...
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...

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...
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…
