I’m not a fan of the Giants home Friday orange jerseys. I like the color orange but as an accent color only. The Giants regular uniform colors (home cream and road grey) are very simple and classy. No need to mess with perfection. I only bring this up because I’m running out of snotrocket post titles and had to put something up there.
Madison Bumgarner pitched well tonight and in fact left the game with a 2 run lead but the Giants bullpen let him down and gave up 4 runs, sticking Bumgarner with a no-decision. As I’m writing this now they’re in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Giants are trailing the Phillies 5-3. [Update: Giants lost. Boo hiss]
But on to happier things. Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, August 15, 2014 at home vs. the Philadelphia Phillies:
- ND, 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 14 SNR (snotrockets): 4 vs. lefties, 6 vs. righties, 4 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 2 double SNR. 1 at-bat SNR.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 1st in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
- Bumgarner now with 32 snotrockets vs. the Phillies and 326 snotrockets overall in 2014.
For your snotrocket viewing pleasure @SanDiegoGiants produced some gifs and a screencap from tonight’s game. But for some reason his gifs came out like videos and I can’t upload videos here without upgrading this blog which means spending money which means forget it. But here’s some links to the snotrocket gifs so you won’t miss out:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be next Thursday, August 21, 2014 on the road vs. the Chicago Cubs. See you here or on Twitter (I live tweet the Bumgarner snotrockets) for all the exciting snotrocket action.
