(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - Apparently winning wasn't enough for some Dodgers fans on opening day.

Los Angeles police are looking for two men who beat and critically injured a San Francisco Giants fan in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after Thursday night's 2-1 Dodgers victory.

Sgt. Sanford Rosenberg says two men in Dodgers clothing followed three men in Giants gear as they walked to their car after the on-field rivals squared off. Rosenberg says the attackers yelled slurs against the Giants and began kicking and punching the men.

One victim suffered a head injury and was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Rosenberg says the injury is not life-threatening.

Maybe baseball is on the way to becoming the "national pastime" once again?
