Saturday baseball = yay
Saturday baseball on Fox Network = not so yay
Saturday baseball on Fox Network in which the Giants lose to the Dodgers = kill me now
The Giants lost. The Dodgers won. Madison Bumgarner blew snotrockets in enemy territory. The Fox Network broadcasting team waxed rhapsodic over the Dodgers and got a lot of things wrong. Sigh.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Saturday, June 16, 2018 on the road vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (eww):
- L, 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB (1 IBB), 3 K, 2 HR, 3 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 3 vs. righties, 0 other.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 3rd in which he blew 2 snotrockets.
- All three of Bumgarner’s snotrockets tonight came while facing Dodgers RHB Chris Taylor.
- Bumgarner now with 9 snotrockets in the 2018 season.
After that there weren’t any snotrockets seen until the 3rd inning. We were then treated to the sight of two rapid-fire snotrockets, one after the other in quick succession. While this might have caused confusion in some people there was no doubt in my mind as to what happened:
3rd inning snotrocket, number one:
3rd inning snotrocket, number two:
Bonus Bumgarner goodies – intense glove wipe:
Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be this Friday, June 22, 2018 at home vs. the San Diego Padres. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
