LOS ANGELES (AP) - Madison Bumgarner pitched two-hit ball over eight innings, giving the San Francisco Giants a 3-0 win against the Dodgers while overshadowing the major league debut of high-priced Los Angeles pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu on Tuesday night.
Bumgarner (1-0) struck out six and walked none in the second straight gem at Dodger Stadium. The only hits were a pair of doubles by Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw homered and pitched a four-hit shutout in the Dodgers' 4-0 victory on opening day Monday.
Sergio Romo worked a perfect ninth to earn his first save of the season.
Ryu's debut helped draw 45,431 fans to see the left-hander who signed a $36 million, six-year deal with the team in December, making him the first player to go directly from the Korea Baseball Organization to the U.S. major leagues.
Ryu (0-1) gave up three runs - one earned - and 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out five, walked none and threw 80 pitches against the defending World Series champions.
CARDINALS 6, DIAMONDBACKS 1
PHOENIX (AP) - Matt Holliday, Pete Kozma and Jon Jay homered as St. Louis beat Arizona to even their season-opening series at a game apiece.
Jaime Garcia (1-0) gave up two hits, one of them a homer by Miguel Montero, in 5 2-3 innings for the Cardinals. Holliday's two-run shot off Trevor Cahill broke a 1-all tie in the sixth.
Kozma added a leadoff homer and Jay a two-run drive off the right-field foul pole, both off reliever Heath Bell in the seventh.
Kozma's homer came on Bell's first pitch with the Diamondbacks. Matt Carpenter doubled twice for St. Louis.
Cahill (0-1) allowed three runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out seven.
ROCKIES 8, BREWERS 4
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each homered for the second straight game, leading Colorado over Milwaukee and giving Walt Weiss his first win as a major league manager.
Tulowitzki is off to quick start after missing the last four months of the 2012 season with an injured left groin that required surgery. The All-Star shortstop went 2 for 5 with a homer and two RBIs in Monday's opening day loss.
Ryan Braun hit his first homer of the season for Milwaukee, a two-run shot.
Edgmer Escalona (1-0) pitched 1 2-3 innings of scoreless relief for the win. Rafael Betancourt got one out for his first save.
The Rockies broke it open in the seventh by scoring three runs off relievers Michael Gonzalez (0-1) and Burke Badenhop.
