Bumgarner blew a sixth inning lead and was ejected on the way out of his second start this season as the Miami Marlins rallied past the San Francisco Giants 7-5 on Monday night.
That’s a game we should have won, Bumgarner said. I let it get away from me and let them back in it. When we play like we did today offensively, battling to score runs especially when we jumped out in front, I’ve got to do better.
West Coast bias: Let’s just make this an all-West Division edition. The Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 8-3 to complete the sweep at Coors Field, scoring 29 runs in the three wins. Oh, Paul Goldschmidt is locked in at the plate finally. He doubled and tripled Sunday after homering twice Friday and twice Saturday. Over his past five games, he’s gone 15-for-22 with 11 extra-base hits. In the process, he has raised his OPS from .723 to .873. From miserable season to good season in less than a week.
So, what do you think? Credit all three players for taking advantage of their opportunities. Is that a smart front office to give them those opportunities? Or has it been some good luck?
Wild West: The Mariners won yet another one-run game, beating the Rays 5-4 as James Paxton fanned 10 in seven innings and Edwin Diaz got the Dan Hampton Jersey save. The final out came on a blooper to right field that Mitch Haniger Cam Neely Youth Jersey couldn’t quite corral, but Johnny Field tried to score all the way from first and Haniger threw him out by 20 feet.
The Mariners are 21-9 in http://www.bearsonlinesprostore.com/DAN-HAMPTON-JERSEY-CHEAP.html one-run games, the most one-run victories through 65 games in MLB history (via Elias Sports Bureau research). Diaz has 23 saves, http://www.bruinsofficialauthenticshop.com/Cam_Neely_Jersey_Adidas with 15 coming when he inherited a one-run lead:
The four-time All-Star was able to convince manager Bruce Bochy to stay in the game, but then immediately allowed a game-tying hit by Lewis Brinson ending his outing. On his way to the dugout, Bumgarner again had words for Rehak, who ejected him.
When I’m out of the game then you can let a little bit of it out, but during the game I might show a little bit (of frustration) after a pitch here and there, but I don’t dwell on it, Bumgarner said. Before I throw the next pitch I’m ready to throw that next pitch so that’s definitely not the case there.
