Playoff atmosphere on Opening Day … against the Dodgers … in LA … where fans hate the defending world champions even more than usual.
So LA's starting pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, throws a complete-game 4-0 shutout and breaks the game open with a leadoff homerun in the eighth. He's no slouch.
Hey, any other game, Matt Cain throws seven scoreless innings, that's a win, right? Am I right?
Stuff happens. Rust. Jitters. LA people can be rude sometimes. You know how it is.
April Fool's Day joke? Hmm… nah. The paper today says the Dodgers won.
Not worried at all.
Giants got nothin' to prove.
Plenty of season left.
