Notes

Ceremonial first pitch: Kiyo Shimizu (Karate)

Yomiuri: The Giants tied a franchise record with their fifth straight opening day victory. Opening day winning streaks: 1953-1957, 1992-1996, 2013-2017. Source: Sponichi 3/31/2017 … Mikolas became just the third foreign pitcher in franchise history (since 1950) to start an opening day game (Balvino Galvez in 1999 and Seth Greisinger in 2009). Three foreign pitchers (no Japanese pitchers) combined for the win for the first time in franchise history. Three foreign pitchers (no Japanese pitchers) combined for an opening day win for the first time in league history. Source: Sponichi 4/1/2017 … Sakamoto blasted a home run on opening day for the second time in his career (2014, 2017). Sakamoto and Abe hit home runs in the same game for the thirtieth time in their careers (the Giants are 25-4-1 in those games). The third (Sakamoto) and fourth (Abe) hitters in the line-up hit home runs on opening day for the fifth time in franchise history (Oh-Nagashim in 1968 and 1972, Matsui-Ochiai in 1994, Ogasawara-Ramirez in 2009). Source: Nikkan Sports 4/1/2017 … Abe homered on opening day for the first time in his career (fifteenth opening day game, fifty-sixth opening day at bat). He is the first Yomiuri clean-up hitter to hit a home run on opening day since Alex Ramirez in 2009 and first Japanese player since Hideki Matsui in 2000.
