Opening Day: Cleveland 9 KRAKENS 3

Opening day at Coney Island's Lifeway Kefir Park and hope springs eternal. Kraken fans enjoyed their debut season in 2012 but hope for a post-season berth in 2013. The opener showcased a rusty Gio Gonzalez for Coney Island and a sharp Yovani Gallardo for Cleveland. The Buckeyes scored five in the third with five singles in a row and an error from the normally sure-handed Gerardo Parra. Coney came back with three in the bottom thanks to a Ben Revere triple and a Butler single. The Buckeyes stretched the lead out with two more runs in the fourth and Andrew McCutchen's homer in the eighth was the coup de grace.
