Game Wrap 7/25/2015: Giants 2 A's 1

Madison Bumgarner has gotten the Cain treatment at times this season, but he took matters into his own hands with his 3'rd HR of the season to help his own cause.  With the help of the bullpen, he got the W and took Game 2 of the interleague series against their cross Bay rivals.  Key Lines:

Joe Panik- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .315.  Panik's double set up the winning run as Matt Duffy followed with the RBI single.

Matt Duffy- 1 for 3.  BA= .299.  The hit drove in the winning run.

Madison Bumgarner- 1 for 2, HR(3).  BA= .256.  It's definitely no fluke.  Bummy is a heckuva hitter.

Sergio Romo- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 4.40.  Romo got the 8'th inning in a 1 run game and held the lead.

Santiago Casilla- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, Save(25).  ERA= 3.06.  Not a clean appearance and a bit of torture, but ultimately saved the game.

The Win got the Giants to 2 games behind the NL West leading Dodgers who lost to the Mets.  The Giants also expanded their lead over the Cubs to 1.5 games for the last Wild Card Playoff spot.

Tim Hudson tries to finish off the sweep on Sunday afternoon facing Kendall Graveman.
