That would be historic - but maybe not out of the realm of possibility if they kept playing the Padres.

The 2017 season was a marked change for the visiting San Diego Padres, who got on the board first after Yangervis Solarte's single drove in Wil Myers.

NEW YORK - Noah Syndergaard struck out seven over six sharp innings in his first opening day start for New York before leaving with a blister, Asdrubal Cabrera snapped a seventh-inning tie with a single and New York broke through following a pivotal replay reversal at the plate in which Wilmer Flores initially was called out. "At the same time, it is a big-league game and you don't want to give away hits, you don't want to give away outs". Baseball experts across the country are agreeing with me and have the Dodgers at least winning their division, if not winning it all. Why?

While it might seem odd Scully didn't even try to watch the game on his first official day off, it makes sense considering he hasn't really had a day to himself in 67 years. Justin Turner will also be a key contributor for the Dodgers, as he put up 153 hits, 79 runs, 27 homers and 90 RBI in 2016. "It's a tough lineup to navigate through".

Opening Day is a phenomenal time for baseball fans - every team is optimistic, the crack of the bat and the smell of grass shavings signify that its time to get those beach bodies ready and baseball caps on. The Padres get another chance against them at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday. The next five, however, reached base and scored. The only major blemish for Kershaw was a solo home run by Ryan Schimpf in the top of the seventh.

This one was in hand seemingly by the time Joc Pederson hit a grand slam in the third inning. Scully followed through with the remarks and didn't watch the Dodgers 14-3 win over the San Diego Padres. Roberts said that Ryu had the choice of pitching in relief of starter Brandon McCarthy but opted to throw the sim game instead.

"We got some work in before I went down", Seager said, "so it'll be a learning curve a little bit for the first couple weeks".

The Cleveland Indians - out to return to the World Series after falling to the Chicago Cubs in seven games in baseball's championship showcase previous year - erased a four-run deficit to beat the Texas Rangers 8-5. However, it is opening day, the Angels now have the talent to make a run at the division title and should be considered a threat to do so until they falter, if they falter.

"I'm aware that I'm not where I've been for about 60,000 years", Scully said. "It means you care about what you do".

Jhoulys Chacin will get the surprise Opening Day start for the Padres, and will be challenged with going toe to toe with a three-time Cy Young victor in Kershaw.

"It's a huge honor to get to do that", he said. "To say I've done it seven times - it's insane to even say that", he said. "To be mentioned with some of those guys like him (Drysdale) or Sandy (Koufax) or Fernando (Valenzuela), it's pretty special".
