S.F. Giants win Opening Day in extras on Slater double

A lockout-delayed Opening Day meant the Giants got to celebrate the start of the new season Friday with their fans at Oracle Park for the first time since 2009. A lot of good Giants vibes came to a screeching halt in the ninth, however, when the bottom of the Marlins’ order jumped on Camilo Doval for three runs, two on a homer by No. 9 hitter Jazz Chisholm Jr. that gave Miami the lead for the first time at 5-4.

Last year, the Giants allowed 309 runs and 67 homers at Oracle Park; the three-year average before the fences came in: 347 runs and 77 homers.
