Watching the Dodgers beat the Giants in a close 2-1 opening day game must have been exciting for fans in the seats of Dodger Stadium, however, for a pair of fans, the victory prompted a more visceral reaction, as they allegedly initiated unprovoked attacks on three Giants fans in the parking lot, leaving one victim critically injured.

Two men wearing Dodgers gear approached three people wearing Giants clothing in Parking Lot 2 at around 8:30 p.m., according to LA Now. The Dodgers fans attacked the three victims, say the LAPD, "kicking and punching them and shouting expletives about the Giants as they delivered the blows." One of the three victims suffered a head injury, and is listed this morning in critical condition at a local hospital.

Now the LAPD are searching for the Dodgers fans who perpetrated the beatings, and ask that anyone with information about the pair get in touch with authorities immediately. "So far, police have no leads to the suspect or suspects responsible for the assault," notes the Daily Breeze.
