It was the Giants vs. the Dodgers (ew) last Tuesday night. I’m not going to say who won because, again, ew. Who won isn’t important anyway. What is important: Bumgarner snotrockets.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, April 2, 2019 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew):
- L, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K,1 HR, 7 SNR (snotrockets): 3 vs. lefties, 3 vs. righties, 1 other.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
- Madison Bumgarner now with 21 snotrockets in the 2019 season.
Bumgarner’s personal snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants was back at work for Madison’s second start of the season and he produced some fine images of Bum blowing some snot. A shot of snot from the 3rd inning:
Also from the 3rd:
Another from the same inning. The snot was strong in the 3rd:
I missed this Bumgarner start because of prior commitments:
When the truth was, I should have never sacrificed watching a Bumgarner start live over zombies. Only one other time have I done this and the guilt was such that I swore I would never do it again. Last Tuesday I did it again and I’m firmly convinced that because I broke my promise and betrayed Bumgarner and his snotrockets he and the Giants lost the game. I must live with this guilt forever.
Back to the snot. I conveyed my worries over missing this Bumgarner start on Twitter and @SanDiegoGiants was reassuring:
The score in the 6th inning was not ideal but the snotrockets were:
Another skill from Madison Bumgarner’s repertoire – the glove chew:
The realization that his snotrocket tallier had (temporarily) abandoned him to slay walkers caused Bumgarner to lose focus in the 3th inning:
But Mr. Bumgarner, true professional and Pitcher Who Rakes that he is, never lets anything affect his hitting prowess:
Bumgarner’s home run made it a 5-2 game; after that the Giants got closer, scoring 3 more runs in the 9th but ultimately lost to the Dodgers (ew) 6-5. So the good guys lost but the snotrocket fans won.
Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was Monday, April 8th, 2019 at home vs. the San Diego Padres.
