World Series: Bumgarner’s Brilliance

madison_bumgarner_giants_world_series_starts_2014Madison Bumgarner shut out the Royals on four hits Sunday night, giving the Giants a 3-2 lead in the World Series. That performance followed up a 7-inning, one-run victory in Game 1. Bumgarner pitched out of trouble in the third inning of Game 1, but the lefty has been dominant since, allowing just two other runners to reach scoring position (one a Sal Perez homer). Over the final eight innings of Game 5, he let just two of 26 consecutive batters reach base.
