The San Francisco Giants wore their special ‘Gigante’ jerseys in last Saturday’s game in honor of Orlando Cepeda’s 80th birthday:
And in honor of Madison Bumgarner’s 16th start of the season the Giants did what they usually do in Bumgarner’s starts: scored zero runs for him. Sigh. You can guess the results.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, September 16, 2017 at home vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks:
- L, 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 1 other.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 7th in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
- Madison Bumgarner now with 58 snotrockets in the 2017 season.
So the game was another undeserved loss for Mr. Bumgarner. What else is new this season? Doesn’t matter though because ever the professional that he is Bumgarner didn’t let his teammate’s ineptitude affect his snotrocketing. There was nasal projection and of course @SanDiegoGiants was right there with Bumgarner, capturing it for our viewing pleasure. Two snotrocket screencaps from the from the 7th inning:
Look at that nasal action. Kind of takes the sting out of yet another Giants loss, doesn’t it? Of course it does.
Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Saturday, September 23, 2017 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (ew). See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
