MLB Scores: Details and Analysis from Opening Day in the Major Leagues
MLB Scores Are Finally Here to the Joy of Baseball Fans Everywhere
A very merry Opening Day to you and yours.
A day that should really be a national holiday finally came after months of waiting. There really is nothing like it. Every team has the same chances out of the gate. Every ballclub starts at zero. Now we get to see what 2011 has in store.
Thursday was a relatively slow day in the majors. Most teams are left to wait for Friday when there will be eleven games on the docket. That does not mean there wasn't a significant amount of action today.
Here is a rundown of the action Thursday.
Detroit Tigers 3
New York Yankees 6
Mark Teixeira actually shows up on day one and hits a home run. Anything is possible.
Los Angeles Angels 4
Kansas City Royals 2
Jered Weaver throws six strong innings, and the bullpen almost undoes it all.
Atlanta Braves 2
Washington Nationals 0
Derek Lowe looks like a bona fide ace. Jason Heyward has another great opening day, hits first home run of baseball season.
Milwaukee Brewers 6
Cincinnati Reds 7
What could be the two contenders to the NL Central met up for another classic finish. Unlikely hero, Ramon Hernandez, has first walk-off home run of the season.
San Diego Padres 5 (11 innings)
St. Louis Cardinals 3
Padres take first extra innings game. Cards see Pujols go 0 for 5. Also hits into three double plays.
San Francisco Giants 0 (6th inning, in progress)
Los Angeles Dodgers 1
So far, this has been a fine pitching duel. Buster Posey throws one away at third to allow Kemp to score.
Crack a beer folks, it's baseball season. Welcome the warm weather, the lazy days of summer are just around the corner. Another fine season has begun.
If you need me, I will be over here smiling.
