Jeff Francoeur recorded his 7th multi HR game of his career. His last one came on April 12, 2008. Oliver Perez is making his first start of the year. He struggled in spring training and got booed on opening day. It will be interesting to see how he reacts in his first start. He has a 9.20 k per 9 inning rate which ranks 3rd among pitchers with at least 1,000 innings pitched.
