One Hit And Several Snotrockets Ago


Madison Bumgarner’s latest attempt at a no-hitter was foiled in the 8th inning yesterday by the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Jake Lamb. It was the only hit that Bumgarner gave up in a complete game win.


Since yesterday’s game was the dreaded 5:05 PM start on ESPN you know there had to be plenty of talk about shadows and ESPN in general

So bottom line: even if there were no snotrocket screencaps and no no-no we still got to see Madison Bumgarner pitch one heck of a game. Which is nice.
