We got snotrocketin on the diamond, whose diamond, what diamond, my diamond…
We ain’t fakin, there was a whole lotta snotrocketin going on in Madison Bumgarner’s last start. For the second start in a row Bumgarner reached double digit snotrocket totals in a game. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a whole lotta Giants offense going on and that meant Bumgarner took a loss even though he only gave up 1 run in 8 innings. The Giants couldn’t even shake it one time and were shut out.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, June 12, 2015 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:
- L, 8.0 IP, 9 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 15 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 7 vs. righties, 7 other. 2 pre-game SNR. 4 at-bat SNR. 1 double SNR.
- Madison Bumgarner most prolific innings were the 1st, 3rd and 6th in which he blew 4 snotrockets per inning.
- Bumgarner’s snotrocket season total now at 85 SNR.
Runs were scarce in Friday’s game but the snotrockets were plentiful and thankfully @SanDiegoGiants screencapped a bunch of them. Here’s one from the 3rd inning (note the home plate ump expressing his delight at witnessing a Bumgarner snotrocket in person):
