The San Francisco Giants were in Washington D.C. this weekend and today they closed out a 3 game series against the Nationals. Madison Bumgarner was on the mound and only one thing was on my mind:
As it turned out I had nothing to worry about. The snotrockets were flowing today. The runs however were not. Madison Bumgarner took yet another severely undeserved loss this afternoon. Bumgarner went the distance, giving up only 2 hits and 1 run. Unfortunately his teammates chose to show their appreciation for Madison’s magnificence by getting only 5 hits and scoring 0 runs. By my unscientific calculations that makes today the 873rd game this season that the Giants have managed to not score a single run in a Bumgarner start. Sad.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Sunday, August 7, 2016 on the road vs. the Washington Nationals:
- L, 8.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 8 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 4 vs. righties, 4 other. 1 glove SNR. 1 double SNR.

Most always if there are Bumgarner snotrockets then there are Bumgarner snotrocket screencaps; today was no exception.

With so few Bumgarner snotrockets being blown lately there’s been little opportunity for the special ones. That changed today when we got one of my personal favorites, the double snotrocket. First the left nostril:
And then the right nostril:
A couple of snotrockets from the 6th inning:
99 problems and a snotrocket ain’t one of them:
Bumgarner went the distance in today’s game. So too did his snotrockets. His teammates? Not so much:

Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, August 13, 2016 at home vs.the Baltimore Orioles. Orange and Black vs. Orange and Black. My money’s on the Orange and Black. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting snotrocket action.
