Madison Bumgarner sounds close to a philosophical breakthrough

Oracle Park view

Bumgarner finished with seven strong innings, allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out five.

The two exchanged words while Muncy trotted around the bases.

That wasn't even really an egregious look by Muncy, but, as noted, it's Bumgarner. They want to let everybody be themselves, then let me be myself. First of all, Muncy just hit a ball 428 feet, so please excuse him for not sprinting out of the batter's box. "I just as soon fight than walk or whatever".

I believe in you, Madison. Nine of Muncy's 13 home runs have come on the road.


But offense from the Giants (26-38) is a rare sighting these days, and yet again it was a no-show in Walker Buehler's (W, 7-1, 3.35 ERA) 1-0 shutout before a crowd of 34,098 fans of Northern and Southern California persuasions, respectively.

Sunday could be Madison Bumgarner's last game with the San Francisco Giants, and if it was, he went out with a bang.

The series finale at Oracle Park in which he maintained velocity and control and limited the best team in baseball to one run, seemed a good advertisement to suggest that guy is still in there. Kenley Jansen came on to pitch the ninth, recording his 19th save. The losing pitcher in that game? San Francisco got back-to-back singles leading off the sixth but Mike Yastrzemski was run down from behind by catcher Austin Barnes trying to scramble back to third on Pablo Sandoval's grounder to third.

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was scratched from Sunday's starting lineup against the Dodgers after coming down with a stomach illness. Tyler Beede (0-2, 8.15) will be seeking his first Major League victory against the Padres Chris Paddack (4-4, 2.97) in the opener.
