Tampa Bay – New York Yankees – 7: 3 (3: 0, 2 : 2, 2: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 1)
Victory: The Archer (1-0)
Defeat: Tanaka (0-1)
Save: Kolome (1)
Home of the Injury: TB – Longoria (1), Morrison (1).
Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka missed all 7 wounds of his team and deservedly deserved defeat. He became the first pitcher of the Yankees since 1973, started at Oupining Day and missed seven or more wounds in less than three inning. He started with three missed wounds in the first inning, conceding only 4 wounds in the first inning for the entire 2016 season.
Logan Morrison made 3 hits, including a home run, and Evan Longoria added another long-ball and two hits. This is the fourth home run of Longoria’s wounds at Oupining Day, and he leads the current Major League Baseball players in this indicator. The Yankees lost the sixth consecutive opening match, which is the longest series in the history of the franchise.
Arizona – San Francisco – 6: 5 (0: 0, 0: 1, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 1, 3: 1, 0: 1, 1: 0 , 2: 1)
Victory: Rodney (1-0)
Defeat: Melankon (0-1)
Home of the Injury: A – Pollock (1); SF – Bamgarner 2 (2).
In a match between Arizona and San Francisco, enchantress Eis Jayants Madison Bamgarner, who not only managed to contain the line of Beatles strikers and make 11 strikeouts, but also repulsed two home runs. Yes, you did not misunderstand, the pitcher repulsed two home runs in one game …
Now on the account of Bamgarner 16 home injury wounds in the career, which is the best indicator for the acting pitchers, and also he is six years ahead of the wounds of any other pitcher since 2009. He was the first bowler to beat off two home runs at Oupening Day, and the only other pitcher with two home runs in the opening matches was Don Drysdale, but he beat them off in different matches. He also became only the fifth player in the history of the Giants with two home runs in these games, joining Barry Bonds, Willie Mays, Bob Elliott and Matt Williams.
But Arizona did not give up even after such an unexpected humiliation from the opponent’s pitcher and time after time played out. With two outs at the bottom of the ninth inning, the chances of Di-Bax’s victory were a tiny five percent, but Arizona was able to not only level the score, but also to snatch victory after Chris Owings’ victorious strike.
The Giants had 30 blown saves in 2016, which was the absolute record of the franchise and the entire league since 1969, when the saves became official statistics. The signing of Mark Melancon had to solve this problem, but instead he was unable to close his first ninth inning in the form of San Francisco. The magnificent victory of Arizona in a delightful, funny and entertaining match.
The Chicago Cubs – The Cardinals – 3: 4 (0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 1, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 0, 0: 2, 3: 1)
