Although in the first game of the season, the San Francisco Giants had a setback against the Arizona Diamondbacks, it was a day that will remain in the history of the Californian set, as one of its players has written history this day in The Major Leagues.
It is Madison Bumgarner, who despite having gone without decision in seven episodes, shined in his turn with the bat, making a pair of home runs in the second and seventh innings, becoming the first opener in the history of the Great Leagues that manage to hit two homers on the opening day of the season.
At the same time, Bumgarner became the first pitcher of the Giants with a multiplayer game, something that had not been done since 1985. The last to achieve it, according to statistics was Jim Gott.
Don Drysdale, who is a Hall of Famer, is the only other pitcher with multiple hits on an Opening Day, although he did the two games.
