Noted Svengoolie hater and snotrocket screencapper @SanDiegoGiants produced some fine snotrocket pics for the viewing pleasure of all. A 1st inning snotrocket:



As noted in the game snotrocket notes above Bumgarner blew his 200th snotrocket of the 2015 season today. Unfortunately it was one of those shy snotrockets and we didn’t get to see it in all its full blown glory. But here it is anyway, for posterity:



Chipotle snotrocket in the 2nd inning:



There was a double snotrocket in the 3rd inning and of course that means separate nasal action shots. First the left nostril:



And then the right nostril:



Cubs 1, Giants 1, Bumgarner 1…more snotrocket:



Another shy snotrocket, this one in the 5th inning:



Bonus Bumgarner: There was a fine balletic play made by Bumgarner at 1st base. Bumgarner took a throw near the 1st base bag and had to make a very graceful pirouette to record the out:
