Madison Bumgarner pitched beautifully and the Giants won for only the third time in their last 12 games. I imagine MadBum had to leave due to the long waits between innings, what with the Giants racking up the runs this evening, must have been difficult for him. Here's the list of runs scored by the Giants in all of the young lefty's starts this season:
1, 1, 5, 1, 0, 0, 3, 4, 3, 6, 7, 1, 0, 5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 6, 5, 2, 2, 0, and 6.
That's 24 starts and 73 runs, or 3.04 per game. The team has scored 405 runs in 117 games or 3.46 per game. It's not like he's being singled out with offensive offensiveness. The Giants spread the love around and hit like crap no matter who is on the mound. Tonight, though, the team found the bag of missing hometown mojo and were overcome with a desire to clog up the bases. I'm not sure what to think. I just want them to keep it going. A win tomorrow afternoon means a 4-6 homestand.
Here's something I like:
That's August for Aubrey Huff. With three hits and a home run tonight that's 11 hits in nine games. That
4-1-3-2 line pushes his BA to .249! Come back to the happy time, Aubrey Huff, Aubrey Huff.
