SAN FRANCISCO -- History confirmed that the Giants' slugging on their season-opening trip was truly unusual.

According to STATS, the 11 homers they hit at Arizona and Los Angeles was their highest total for a two-city journey since they mashed 12 at Chicago's Wrigley Field and Colorado's Coors Field from Sept. 21-26, 2010.

The Giants also entered Tuesday leading the Majors in home runs. The last time they led the National League was 2001, when Barry Bonds' record output of 73 swelled their team total to 235. San Francisco last led the Majors with 150 in 1972.
