the giants sit alone atop the western division after taking the season opener. bochy used 7 pitchers to record the win after defending cy young winner lincecum never got into a rhythm and lasted but 3 innings. all 8 giants starters scored, and they turned 3 doubleplays. each team had 2 batters hit in the first 4 innings in an overall sloppy game. the brewers swiped 4 without being thrown out.
the biggest of the big men:
joe martinez, getting the win in his first big league appearance.
medders/affeldt/howry/hinshaw/wilson for allowing but 1 run on 3 hits over the final 4.
travis ishikawa with a 2-out, bases-clearing 3-bagger deep into mirabelli alley.
aaron rowand for a go-ahead 2-run bomb in the 4th.
