Scoreless Snotrockets


Yawn, another well-pitched game by Madison Bumgarner. Snore, a San Francisco Giants walk-off win in the bottom of the 9th on a Brandon Crawford solo home run. Ho hum, there were a lot of snotrockets in tonight’s game wait I mean WE HAD MULTIPLE SNOTROCKETS WOW HOLY MOLY GADZOOKS EXCITEMENT.

Yes, the Giants won tonight’s game but once again Mr. Bumgarner didn’t get the win even though he pitched extremely well, giving up zero runs and only 2 hits in 7 innings. Ordinarily I would be unhappy about yet another fine outing by Bumgarner going unrewarded but it was hard to be sad for too long because we got a lot of first-rate snotrockets tonight.

@SanDiegoGiants did a fine job tonight of capturing snotrockets in both static and gif form. Bumgarner’s only had a couple of double snotrockets so far in his pinky-shortened season but he blew one in tonight’s game and the trusty snotrocket screencapper got both sides. First up is the left nostril:


Then the right nostril:


Fast and furious snotrocket from the 4th inning:


Bumgarner shows his disdain for the Giants going scoreless by blowing a snotrocket onto his teammates:


Much more rare than a double snotrocket is the double pump or double blow snotrocket: two snorts out of the same nostril. Bumgarner performed one of these uncommon nasal shots in the top of the 5th inning. It was also accompanied by a medley of nose moves:


Sneaky snotrocket from the centerfield camera in the 6th inning:


Bonus Bumgarner goodness – even when he’s not blowing snotrockets Madison can still entertain in other ways:


Madison Bumgarner’s next start should be Monday, July 2, 2018 on the road vs. the Colorado Rockies. See you here or on Twitter for all the exciting Bumgarner snotrocket action.
