Madison Bumgarner pitched against his old team the San Francisco Giants for only the second time and was victorious twice over because not only did he get the win he also blew some snotrockets.
Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at home vs. the San Francisco Giants:
- W, 7.0 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR, 4 SNR (snotrockets): 1 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 1 other. 1 pre-game SNR. 1 double SNR. 4 indoor SNR.
- Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific innings were the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in which he blew 1 snotrocket per inning.
- Bumgarner now with 147 snot rockets in the 2021 season.
As noted in the stats above these were all indoor snotrockets because the roof was closed at Chase Field. Understandable given the fact that before the game the temperature outside of the ballpark in Phoenix, AZ was a scorching 111° F. Inside the park with the roof closed it was much cooler so Bumgarner was able to blow his snot in relative comfort.
Here’s the first snotrocket of the game, a pre-game one just before the first pitch:
The second inning snotrocket was a double. The left nostril went first:
Then came the right nostril:
Third inning snotrocket:
These were all very nice but the fourth inning snotrocket was my favorite of the night because I was able to catch the spray:
