Ladies and gentlemen: a new baseball stat?
Today is a two-fer because I neglected to post the totals from last week’s Bumgarner outing. There is no real reason behind that other than sheer laziness. I humbly apologize and promise to never let it happen again. Until it actually does happen again which will cause me to humbly apologize again.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, May 26, 2015 on the road vs. the Milwaukee Brewers (open roof):
- W, 6.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR, 5 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 3 vs. righties, 2 other. 1 on-base SNR.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 6th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
- Madison Bumgarner now with 52 SNR (snotrockets) on the season. Last year he reached his 52nd SNR on 04/22/14.
As is becoming all too disturbingly common this season Bumgarner had yet another low snotrocket total in last week’s game against the Brewers. Yet even though the snotrockets were scarce @SanDiegoGiants still managed to capture a few for snotrocket posterity. An on-base long distance snotrocket from the 3rd inning:
A snotrocket from the end of the 4th inning:
And lastly a runners-on second-and-third-and-nobody-out snotrocket in the 6th inning:
And now for today’s totals. We won’t discuss the outcome of today’s San Francisco Giants game. Let’s just stick to the snotrockets because they’re always cheerful and fun and filled with snotrockety goodness.

Bumgarner’s perfect game was still going strong in the 3rd inning and his snotrocket game was on point too:
Bumgarner’s perfect game and no-hitter was gone by the 6th inning but the snotrockets were still going strong:
A classic snotrocket shot, also from the 6th inning:
