Madison Bumgarner Has Responded To Everyone Who’s Crushing Him

Max Muncy hit a towering home run off of Madison Bumgarner in the first inning of Sunday's game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, and let's just say the left-hander did not appreciate the way Muncy admired the feat.

Bumgarner (3-6) left a 92 miles per hour fastball high over the plate to Muncy, who crushed the ball 426 feet into the waters past the walkway beyond the right field wall. Home plate umpire Will Little stood with Bumgarner to prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

We shouldn't be surprised by Bumgarner's quotes.

The two exchanged words while Muncy trotted around the bases.

"He just struck a pose and walked further than I like, that's fine". And to put a cherry on top of it all, he revealed his response to Bumgarner yelling at him. They want to let everybody be themselves, then let me be myself.

For Bumgarner, that meant yelling at Muncy. He lasted seven innings, giving up the one run on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts, lowering his ERA on the season to 3.83.

The American Samoa, plagued by passport issues, only suited up one of 20 regulars for this qualifier in Australia. The U.S. beat the Dominican Republic 14-0 in a 2012 Olympic qualifier in Vancouver, British Columbia.

I believe in you, Madison. Kenley Jansen came on to pitch the ninth, recording his 19th save.

The series finale at Oracle Park in which he maintained velocity and control and limited the best team in baseball to one run, seemed a good advertisement to suggest that guy is still in there.

Mike Yastrzemski led off with a single, the first Giants leadoff hitter to reach base.

Following an off day tomorrow, the Giants return to action Tuesday night for a pair of games against San Diego.

Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was scratched from the lineup because of a stomach illness. Tyler Beede (0-2, 8.15) will be seeking his first Major League victory against the Padres Chris Paddack (4-4, 2.97) in the opener.
