Let it be known to all and sundry that on July 25, 2017 Madison Kyle Bumgarner finally, finally got his first win of the year. Of course it has been a dirt bike-shortened year so he didn’t have his usual amount of starts but on the other hand the Giants have given him such pitiful run support in the games he has started this season that I was beginning to worry that Bumgarner would go 0 for 2017. Worry no more because Mr. Bumgarner is now the proud owner of at least one win this season. Take that, dirt bike.
