AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
• Summary: Barry Zito might be San Francisco's new $126 million prize, but Jake Peavy was the one with the million-dollar arm. Peavy gave the Padres six shutout innings in their 7-0 season-opening win over the Giants.
• Bonds Watch: The closest Barry Bonds came to homering was a fly ball to the warning track in left. Bonds finished the day 1-for-3 with a walk.
• Figure this: Behind Peavy, the Padres earned their first Opening Day shutout in team history. The blanking also marks the first time the Giants have been shut out in the season opener since 1967 and just the third time in 80 years.
• Quotable: "I don't plan on doing any socializing," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy before taking the field against his former club.

It was Zito's third consecutive opening-day loss. ... Bonds had just three steals all last season. ... Bochy met before the game with his relievers to talk over what their roles will be early in the season. ... Greene made his fourth straight opening-day start at SS for San Diego, the most by a Padres SS since Garry Templeton made a club-record nine in a row from 1982-1990. ... Zito struck out on four pitches in the third, his lone at-bat. ... The Padres have no lefties in the bullpen.
