Game Wrap 8/7/2016: Nationals 1 Giants 0

Madison Bumgarner was the victim of another Bumming as the Giants offense went back to sleep against Tanner Roark and the Washington Nationals.  Key Lines:

Madison Bumgarner- 8 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 K's.  ERA= 2.20.  Bumgarner was coming off his worst start of the season and one of the 4 worst starts of his career.  You can't pitch much better than this line, but it wasn't enough.  Wilson Ramos' solo HR in the 7'th was the difference in the games.  Bummed!


The Dodgers pounded David Price and beat the BoSox 8-5, so the Giants lead in the NL West shrinks to just 1 game.


The Giants move on to Miami where Johnny Cueto has to face Jose Fernandez in Game 1 tomorrow.  Fernandez has not been as sharp in his last 7 starts with a 3.89 ERA over that span.
