MESA, Ariz. -- A's shortstop Marcus Semien made quite the first impression in green and gold, belting two home runs and finishing 3-for-3 with four RBIs in the club's Cactus League opener against the Bay rival Giants at Hohokam Stadium on Tuesday, which the A's won 9-4.
Three of those RBIs came against Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner. Back on the mound for the first time since his World Series MVP performance, Bumgarner faced 10 batters and was tagged for four runs and five hits, including a two-run homer to Semien, with two strikeouts.
