Poor Madison Bumgarner. He pitched extremely well (again) but got a no decision tonight. The Giants did pull out a win in the 9th inning though, thanks to Pablo Sandoval’s non-fat 2 run homer, and beat the DBacks 2-1. So all is well.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, April 30, 2013 on the road vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:
- ND, 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2, K, 0 HR, 11 SNR (snotrockets): 2 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 3 other.
- Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 4th in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
Above all I strive to be as accurate as possible when tallying Bumgarner’s snotrockets. Sometimes it’s difficult to determine if what Bumgarner’s doing out on the mound is actually blowing a snotrocket or something else. Usually that happens when the camera angle is from centerfield; Bumgarner’s on the mound, his back is to the camera and occasionally it’s hard to tell what’s going on out there. Is it a snotrocket? Is he blowing into his hand? Or is it something else? After going over the footage of a questionable snotrocket in the third inning many times I posted this on Twitter:
Accuracy is all important when tallying Bumgarner’s snotrockets. Without it where would we be? In a world of snotrocket confusion. No thank you. I need snotrocket clarity in my life. We all do.
Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Monday, May 6, at home vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
