No Run Support For Bumgarner, Giants Lose 5-4

By Denise Walos

Madison Bumgarner gets no run support. Again. I would be pissed if I were him. Seriously… Every at bat Bumgarner has, you hear the broadcasters say, “Let’s see Bumgarner help his own cause.” It makes me mad. HOW MUCH MORE CAN HE?

(40) at bat against the Houston Astros during the third inning at AT

Lots of stupid errors. Five errors between the Giants and Rockies.

For the Giants:

For the Rockies:

Bumgarner went 5.1 innings and allowed 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 6 K.  He now has a 2.91 ERA.

Jhoulys Chacin had a no hitter going into the 7th inning. He was 7 outs from making history but Brandon Crawford (thankfully) broke it up with a single to center in the 8th inning. Chacin ended his night after 7 innings, allowing 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 Ks. Very impressive.

Bumgarner has the 8th lowest run support in the majors and the lowest on the Giants starting pitching staff. That sucks.
