Bumgarner Homers, Doubles, Throws 3-Hit Shutout With 14 Ks, Reverses Rotation Of Earth To Save Lois Lane
Max Scherzer is likely wishing he'd kept his mouth shut about that DH thing. Remember earlier this season when he said this?:
With Scherzer looking on from the dugout, Madison Bumgarner hit a two-run homer and had a double, striking out 14 on a three-hit shutout as the Giants beat the Nationals 5-0 on Sunday, sweeping the four-game series. It all begs the question, why would Scherzer say anything to begin with? It's not as if MLB was waiting on his opinion to change the DH rule.
Anyway, a pissed-off Bumgarner is no one you want to face -- his homer was his fourth of the season, eighth of the past two seasons, and 10th of his career. With 10 starts remaining, Bumgarner is chasing Carlos Zambrano for most homers in a season by a pitcher over the past two decades -- six, in 2006.
Of course the Dodgers' Zack Greinke has something to say about all of this as well.
