The Rays won, 1-0, on a solo HR from Austin Meadows— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) April 1, 2021
Can he join a list with Joe Panik in Game 2?
In the Giants' 1st 2 games in 2018, Panik became the 1st player in MLB history to hit a HR in consecutive 1-0 victories by his team, let alone to start a season! (h/t @EliasSports)
