Extra Bases

Reception for Roberts

Dave Roberts just brought down the house with a standing ovation — though not the loudest cheers I’ve heard here — when he stepped to the plate to lead off the game for the Giants. He gave a fist recognition to both sides of the ballpark before entering the batter’s box.

He got rather tepid applause when he singled to right.
