Tue, Jul 31 Bumgarner tossed six strong innings Monday during the Giants' extra-innings loss to the Mets. He allowed two earned runs on six hits with two walks and nine strikeouts. Recommendation: Bumgarner left the game with a lead but was stuck with a no-decision as the Giants bullpen got touched up in the eighth. The effort was Bumgarner's second straight nine-strikeout performance and the young righty boasts a stellar 68:11 strikeout-to-walk ratio over his last nine starts (62.1 innings). Bumgarner will look to improve on his 11-5 record Saturday versus the Rockies. (Rotowire.com)
Holy crap, if he can pitch this well with his left hand, I wish he'd start pitching with his dominant hand!
