AT&T Park is in a state of “Panda-monium.”

Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval — who is affectionately nicknamed “Kung Fu Panda” — hit a Justin Verlander pitch into the right-center field seats in the bottom of the first inning of this World Series opener, giving San Francisco a 1-0 lead.

Giants left-hander Barry Zito looked a bit shaky in the top of the first, throwing only 11 of his 17 pitches for strikes, but he worked around an Omar Infante single and a Miguel Cabrera walk to keep the Tigers scoreless.

The top of the second inning just got underway. We’ll have updates throughout the evening.

    I THOUGHT I was watching the World Series, but apparently they aired the Kung Fu Panda show instead

    Going into the bottom of the fourth, Giants up 4-0. It looks like Zito is giving Verlander a pitching lesson and Sandoval is holding a batting clinic.
