Opening Night on the ESPN Networks were a great Success, as some great games were played.

ESPN Deportes had this one as Carlos Carrasco & Bartolo Colon brought Brooklyn Dodgers fans out in droves, but the home town crowd left disappointed as the Crawfords from Pittsburgh beat the Dodgers by a score of 3 to 1.  Elvis Andrus has 2 Singles to go along with 2 RBI’s from the leadoff spot for Pittsburgh.

The New York Giants got Home Runs & 2 RBI’s each from Danny Santana & Kendry Morales to squeak out a 7-6 Victory over the home town Pilots of Seattle.
Johnny Cueto took one on the chin for the Giants, not getting out of the first inning & allowing 5 Runs.

In Detroit where the Stars are heading into 2017 as the early season favorites they got a great pitching performance from John Lester, throwing 8 scoreless innings.

But it wasn’t enough as the Grays of Homestead starter Rick Porcello went 10 Innings, allowing only 1 Hit, 2 Walks, while striking out 11 in a Complete Game 1-0 Shutout of the Stars.

In the Gateway to the West the St. Louis Browns couldn’t scrap together a run off Senators starter Noah Snydergaard.  David Price making his Browns debut pitched 8 Innings allowing 0 Earned Runs, but the Browns defense let him down with 2 errors (Joey Votto & Andrew Toles).  Melky Cabrera had 3 Single for the Senators – Washington wins this one with a Final Score of 2-0.
