(AP) -- Under brilliant sunshine and an infinite blue sky, the Cleveland Indians began a new era of spring baseball today.
After training for 16 years in Florida, the Indians returned to Arizona and christened glistening Goodyear ballpark with a 10-7 loss to the San Francisco Giants.
Hall of Famer Bob Feller threw out the ceremonial first pitch and four F-16 fighter jets screamed by in a fly over. First baseman Travis Ishikawa homered twice, Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run shot and NL Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum worked one scoreless inning for the Giants.
Third baseman Mark Derosa, acquired by the Indians in a trade with the Chicago Cubs this winter, hit a three-run homer and Stephen Head and Michael Aubrey added solo shots for Cleveland.
