Snakes vs. Snotrockets


The Giants beat the Diamondbacks yesterday (final score 4-2) and in the process picked up a game in the NL West standings. They now trail the first place Dodgers (eeuww) by only 2 games.  Madison Bumgarner only received a no-decision yesterday but that’s okay because win, lose or no-decision a Bumgarner game is always excellent because of snotrockets.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Wednesday, September 17, 2014 on the road vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:


  • ND, 6.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. L, 1 vs. R, 2 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner now has 41 snotrockets vs. the Diamondbacks and 385 snotrockets overall in 2014.


As you can see by the tally above there weren’t a lot of snotrockets in yesterday’s game. But that doesn’t deter an expert snotrocket screencapper like @SanDiegoGiants. He captured several Bumgarner beauties for your viewing pleasure. Here’s one from the 2nd inning:



Bumgarner was especially proud of his 3rd inning snotrocket and felt it deserved special merit:



And in the 4th inning @SanDiegoGiants made an important discovery regarding MLB’s policy on snotrockets:



Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Tuesday, September 23, 2014 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eeuww). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
