maybe not if you're a dodgers fan. pablo whacks it to right. josh beckett over and out, first of the year in the 3rd inning. later, it's hunter over the fence, and his first of the year. that's kind of inside out over the wall in right. the giants do get five innings of work out of lincecum. no earned runs. bullpen nails, including sergio romo. one-two-three night, and his second save. memorable for many reasons. unforgettable for one oakland a in particular and his family. rookie nate right here, first big league at bat. drives in a run. clutch two-out single. mom and dad loving it. why not. that's big league baseball. jed lowrie, newcomer to the a's, two-out double to plate a pair, breaking a 2-2 tie. a's in control but can't off
