Best game of the season so far

What a fine fine night.

Here's the top of Henry Schulman game story for the Chron -- Madison Bumgarner did not have to prove his mettle to anybody. He checked that box in indelible ink when he pitched eight shutout innings in his first World Series start as a 21-year-old rookie.

If any skeptics remained, Bumgarner gave them Exhibit B on Sunday night, when he overcame his historically bad start against Minnesota by going on national television, striking out a career-high 11 and holding Cleveland to one run over seven innings in a 3-1 Giants victory.

Great games also for Chris Stewart, Jeremy Affeldt and Sandoval, who's looking locked in occasionally
