After veteran left-hander Barry Zito nonchalantly mowed down the Rockies in their home opener Monday, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy sat back and talked about the weather. Bochy partially credited the warm and sunny elements for Zito's masterful 7-0 shutout at Coors Field.

"Sure, it's unusual," Bochy said when asked about a pitcher getting a complete game this early in the season. "He (Zito) didn't labor at any point. His pitch count was good. It was a great day. It wasn't hot. The weather was perfect."
