The San Francisco Giants welcome the Kansas City Royals to Oracle Park today for their home opener.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be right-hander Alex Cobb, making his second start of the season. Cobb’s last start was in Saturday’s 7-5 win over the New York Yankees, in which he allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits with a walk and six strikeouts in three and two thirds innings.

He’ll be facing off against Royals right-hander Brad Keller, who made his first start of the season in Sunday’s 1-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins, in which he allowed two runs on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts in four and two thirds innings.
