Dominant Pitching By Bumgarner Leads Giants To Win

By Cheval John

Madison Bumgarner’s pitching dominance led the San Francisco Giants to a 5-0 victory against the Kansas City Royals to take a 3-2 lead.

Bumgarner had 8 strikeouts in the game and improved his Earned Run Average (ERA) to 0.29, which is the lowest in World Series history.

He became the second pitcher to throw a shutout in a World Series game.

The last pitcher to do so, St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jack Sanford in the second game of the 1962 World Series against the mighty New York Yankees.

Bumgarner’s World Series record has improved to 4-0.

Even if the Giants had lost the night before, this series would have gone back to Kansas City because of the pitching dominance of Bumgarner.

It does not hurt that he can hit too.
