Dodgers' Kershaw blanks Giants, homers in opener

From his vantage point behind the plate, Giants catcher Buster Posey said he wasn't sure if Clayton Kershaw's hit had enough oomph to clear the fence in the deepest part of Dodger Stadium. Nor was George Kontos, who threw the two-seam fastball to start the eighth inning that Kershaw – the Dodgers' ace who had one extra-base hit in five seasons in the majors – crushed to straightaway center field.
