Mad Bum is on the mound, Mad Bum is on the mound...

Pitching anyone?  If you like bad outfielding, bad baserunning, and another team's pitcher having a great game where the most crowd pleasing play in baseball, the homerun, cannot happen, then Tuesday nights Giants 2-1 win over the Washington Nationals was the game for you.

Madison Bumgarner pitched a complete game, giving up just 1 run.  Basically some poor outfielding by Hunter Pence and a booted ball by the shortstop allowed the run, but it still counted as earned.  6 K's, 1 Walk, and just 5 hits and the "run".

His counterpart Jordan Zimmermann pitched just 5 2/3 innings giving up 2 runs on 8 hits.  Zimm didn't do awful, but Bumgarner shut down the Nats offense, giving up just 5 hits, 2 to Danny Espinosa and 1 to Jordan Zimm.

The Nats cut the lead to 2-1 in the 7th inning, but in the 8th the Giants pushed the game out of hand.  Drew Storen gave up 4 runs and only got one out on the 5 batters he faced.  With the lead 6-1 the Nats had no shot.

The Braves won, and the division lead is back down to 4.5.

One more tomorrow in San Fran, a "day" game...
