Greg Maddux earned his 348th career win, Adrian Gonzalez went 4-for-5 with a homer and four runs, and the San Diego Padres spoiled the San Francisco Giants' first home opener since cutting ties with Barry Bonds by winning 8-4 Monday. The Giants celebrated the 50th anniversary of their move from New York without the player responsible for the bulk of the team's highlights the past 15 seasons.
The team decided not to bring Bonds back after he broke Hank Aaron's career home run record last season, and the slugger remains unsigned. So far, the post-Bonds era has provided few highlights for the Giants. While the fans were still getting settled following a pregame ceremony that honored Willie Mays and other members of the 1958 team that was the first in San Francisco, the Padres jumped out to an early lead against Matt Cain (0-1).
