Squandered Snotrockets


Today there was a fine pitching performance by Madison Bumgarner that was wasted by his teammates. Bumgarner pitched well enough and was in line for the win but another late inning meltdown (their third in a row) by the Giants caused Bumgarner to take a no decision and caused San Francisco to get swept at home by the Rockies. All those Bumgarner snotrockets, in vain. Sigh.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, June 15, 2014 at home vs. the Colorado Rockies:


  • ND, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 16 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 9 vs. righties, 6 other. 2 at bat SNR. 1 double SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 5th in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now has 48 snotrockets vs. the Rockies this year and 197 snotrockets overall in 2014.


Even though today’s loss was a bitter one thanks to @SanDiegoGiants there are some snotrocket screencaps to sweeten your day. A 1st inning snotrocket:




Here’s Bumgarner celebrating a very special  Sunday as only Bumgarner can:
