Snotrocketing on the DH

 

The San Francisco Giants were on ‘the road’ tonight, road being just a stone’s throw from AT&T Park. The Oakland A’s hosted the Giants and Madison Bumgarner. SF manager Bruce Bochy decided to forego the DH in the AL park and let Bumgarner hit for himself. Those poor A’s never stood a chance.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Thursday, June 30, 2016 on the road vs. the Oakland A’s:

 

  • W, 6.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, 9 SNR (snotrockets): 2 vs. lefties, 3 vs. righties, 4 other.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 6th in which he blew 3 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner now with 150 snotrockets in the 2016 season.

 

Designated hitter hater  @SanDiegoGiants once again produced some high quality snotrockets for the fans to enjoy. Third K snotrocket in the 3rd:

So often the truth about west coast night starts for the Giants is this: much of the east coast media is already sound asleep whenever Bumgarner flexes his greatness. So a day game in Atlanta is ever so nice:
