Giants 4, Dodgers 2: Just Writing It Makes Me Giddy

The Giants won their fifth consecutive season opener today by beating the Dodgers 4-2. There were a lot of things I didn't really like from the Giants in the game, but a win's a win, and any time the Giants beat the Bums it puts a big, fat, S-eating smile on my face.

Schmidt started off a bit rocky, giving up a leadoff homer to Cesar Izturis, of all people, but he settled down after the third and pitched like the flamethrower we all know and love, blowing assorted Chois and Phillipi away with high heat and deadly changeups.

Edgardo Alfonso hit a frozen rope home run, but the Giants' other runs came on defensive flubs by L.A., so the offense looks a tad creaky, but it's Opening Day and nothing looks too pretty without Bonds in there. Overall, a great way to begin the season.

Better than John Smoltz's start, anyway. Eegad!
