And the season begins.

Izturis leads off the game with a single down the line. Trying to be aggresive early Izturis is nailed at third on a spectacular throw from Moises Alou. Jason Schmit gets Werth to ground out and stikes out Drew on 4 pitches.

Derek Lowe's first batter of the year is Ray Durham. Lowe makes quick work of Durham as he flys out to Short. Omar Vizquel is also quickly taken care of as he lines out to second, bringing up Barry Bonds. Bonds is eaten up by a great sinker from Lowe and grounds out to third to end the inning.

Dodgers 0, Giants 0

This was a dissapointing finish for what looked like a great outing for Derek Lowe. Lowe pitched 6 innings of shutout ball before giving up 2 runs in the 7th. The Giants 3,4,5 hitters got to Gange in the ninth and lit him up for 3 runs. A walk of 3 run shot by J.T. snow gives him todays player of the game.

Drew- 2-4,2RBI

Alfonzo- 2-3,1RBI

If anyone liked how the first game was done let me know. If there are any ideas for anything else I should do let me know. I think I did a little to much play by play. I got lazy after a few innings but I think the simple play by play gets the job done. I will post season stats and standings after every series.
