Blackout rules are blackout rules. You have to wait 2.5 hours after first pitch to watch. Multisport is not a substitute for MLB EI on Direct and you won't get out of market games either.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

According to the link below, your regional sports networks are CSN California, Fox Sports Prime Ticket, and Fox Sports West. CSN Bay Area is not your local network, and even with the multi sports pack, most out-of-area professional sporting events are blacked out (although there may be some that are not).

You apparently are in the LA market for the sporting events, not the SF market. You could switch to cable or Direct and then purchase Extra Innings. You would receive most of the Giants and A's games that way.
