Snakes and Snotrockets

Another Madison Bumgarner outing, another Madison Bumgarner gem. There were lots of snotrockets but not a lot of Giants runs (One count ’em one run) so even though Bumgarner pitched beautifully he was saddled with the loss. Sigh.


Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for July 21, 2013 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:

  • L, 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 HBP, 6 K, 12 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 8 vs. righties, 3 other. 6 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 4th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now has 37 snotrockets vs. the DBacks this season.
  • More Bumgarner SNR (snotrocket) notes: today’s totals of 6 double SNR is tied for most double SNR in 2013 (6/30/13 vs. Rockies).

During the game @SanDiegoGiants posted some great snotrocket screenscaps on Twitter. First, it’s one of the day’s 6 double snotrockets:


Prepare yourself for the close-ups. The left nostril:


And then the right nostril:


Wait don’t go. There’s one more snotrocket screencap. From the centerfield camera:


Whether they’re close-up or at a distance Bumgarner’s snotrockets never disappoint.

Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, July 27 at home vs. the Chicago Cubs. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
