12-3

Now that's how to start a season -- crushing the Brew Crew at Miller Park. I wonder if my old pal Bud Selig was in attendance.

Madison Bumgarner gutted out 5 innings with a fever, according to mlb.com --

 
MILWAUKEE -- Madison Bumgarner was under the weather, but the rest of the Giants appeared healthy, strong and right on schedule.
Denard Span and Matt Duffy each homered and combined for nine RBIs as the Giants overcame Bumgarner's shaky start for a 12-3 win Monday over the Brewers on Opening Day at Miller Park. Having won the World Series in each of the past three even-numbered years, the 2016 season was off to an auspicious start for San Francisco.
Bumgarner walked home a run in the first inning and surrendered solo home runs to Brewers infielders Scooter Gennett in the second and Jonathan Villar in the third.
"Sometimes, days like today are more rewarding than when you go out there with your best stuff," said Bumgarner, who began feeling weakened by chills and a fever Saturday night.
