Pinch Hit Snotrocket


The anticipation:

Yes. It really happened. You didn’t dream it. Madison Bumgarner pinch hit in tonight’s game.  And though he only lined out to the pitcher he did blow a snotrocket so all was not lost.  In case you don’t believe me then here’s the proof, courtesy of @SanDiegoGiants:

As of right now the San Francisco Giants are still tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-10 in the 12th inning but if they end up losing then everyone’s blaming this woman:

Update: the Giants won 11-10 in 13 innings. Curse of the Flower Hat: denied. It was an exciting win for the Giants but of course my mind was on more important things:

That was the first pinch hit snotrocket I’ve seen Madison Bumgarner blow. I wasn’t prepared for it and I don’t know what to do with it. I really can’t count it in his regular season snotrocket totals because I only tally the snotrockets that Bumgarner blows during games he starts and this one was blown during a pinch-hit appearance. Oh the dilemma. What to do? I guess just enjoy it for the snotrockety goodness it delivered.
