Bumgarner vs. Jason Hewyard

Martin Lee has a long but very interesting post at Obsessive Giants Compulsive comparing the two, who were available in the 2007 draft. I agree with him; Madison is close to elite 

Chris Haft's game story for mlb.com barely mentions either player, given that Gregor Blanco got a start and made the most of it with 3 steals and 3 runs in a glorious 10-4 vic.  

Heyward got the day off and Madison had a less-than-quality start with 4 runs in 5 innings followed by 4 innings of shutdown by the pen. Arias batted for him while the score was 5-4 --


  • Brandon Crawford doubles (7) on a line drive to left fielder Justin Upton.
  • 2.Brandon Hicks flies out to right fielder Ryan Doumit. Brandon Crawford to 3rd.
  • Offensive Substitution: Pinch-hitter Joaquin Arias replaces Madison Bumgarner.
  • 3.Joaquin Arias pops out to second baseman Tyler Pastornicky.
  • 4.Gregor Blanco singles on a line drive to left fielder Justin Upton. Brandon Crawford scores.
  • With Hunter Pence batting, Gregor Blanco steals (4) 2nd base.
  • 5.Hunter Pence singles on a line drive to center fielder B. J. Upton. Gregor Blanco scores. Hunter Pence to 2nd on the throw.
  • 6.Buster Posey flies out to center fielder B. J. Upton.
