What We Learned: It's about more than just the game

It was a rough opener for the Brewers as they were blown out by the Giants, but that's not all that Opening Day is about. We talk about all of that in today's What We Learned.

Yesterday's Results

Giants 12, Brewers 3

Well, it was still Opening Day, though not the one we were hoping for. The Brewers managed to get to Madison Bumgarner, getting three runs off of him, including home runs from Scooter Gennett and Jonathan Villar. However, the Giants got to Wily Peralta more, as he allowed five runs in four innings of work. The bullpen wasn't better off as Carlos Torres allowed two runs, and Ariel Pena allowed five.
