Another win! Another W for Madison Bumgarner, although, perhaps, not his best outing. He went 6, 99 pitches worth, and threw 61 strikes. Madison gave up 3 runs on 4 hits, uncharacteristically walking 2 and gave up a home run. Madison also got a hit and scored a run. After a solo home run in the 4th by Aramis Ramirez, the damage to Madison was done in the 6th. George Kontos pitched the 7th, and Sergio Romo found the last out in that inning and then went through the 8th. Santiago Casilla got a save for a 2 hit, 2 K 9th.
Nori Aoki had another fine night with 3 hits. 7 other hits were scattered throughout the lineup, with Matt Duffy delivering a 2 run homer and Brandon Belt adding a solo shot in the 7th to top off the score at 6 - 3.
In the 8th, Sergio Romo came to the plate. No doubt Ron was apoplectic. Sergio had a chance to tie Madison Bumgarner for home runs in 2015, but, as it turned out, he did not get a hit. Nor did he hit into an out. In fact, he struck out looking. No matter, though, as he held the Brewers scoreless in the bottom of the 8th. I personally believe the man has a hit in him somewhere, but perhaps tonight was just not the night for it. Sergio will make it known when the time is ripe.
