The young Giants come through again
Bumgarner and Belt are looking like old pros, just like Tuesday night, getting it done against a potential playoff team in a 2-1 vic. Rusty Simmons of the Chron has a nice game story note --
Bumgarner allowed the leadoff hitter to reach base four times, but didn't appear distracted. He pounded the zone with 65 strikes in the 93-pitch outing and didn't walk a batter.
It marked the 19th consecutive start in which Bumgarner has issued two or fewer walks. The last Giants' pitcher to do that was Juan Marichal, who went 21 straight starts in 1970-71 without walking three hitters.
