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.
