San Francisco Giants podcast with Morris Phillips: Muncy’s 1st inning home run leaves MadBum really mad

from Los Angeles Dodgers’ Max Muncy rounds the bases after hitting a solo home run off of San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner during the first inning of a baseball game in San Francisco, Sunday, June 9, 2019.

On the San Francisco Giants podcast with Morris:

#1 San Francisco Giants starter Madison Bumgarner hates it when anyone flips a bat or makes a gesture, and when the Dodgers come to town, there’s that chance that could happen instead of the bat flipping when the Dodgers’ Max Muncy went for a splash hit into McCovey Cove in right field. The fireworks started when Muncy was admiring the homer and Bumgarner told Muncy to run and not watch the ball.

#2 Bumgarner said that he would rather fight than let the new age of hitters flip a bat or admire a home run saying Muncy could do his thing while I do mine.

#3 It was the second game of the three-game set between the two clubs and the bad blood didn’t wait to get started. Muncy said that he look for only a moment and then took two steps and started to run the bases. Muncy also said that if Bumgarner didn’t like him to watch the ball that Bumgarner could go to the ocean and get it.

#4 Things did settled down as no one would score for the rest of the afternoon as the Dodgers got a 1-0 shutout behind the fine pitching of starter Walker Buehler, who went seven innings with a shutout giving up five hits.

#5 The Giants have Monday off, but will host the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night at Oracle with the Padres starting Chris Paddack (4-4, 2.97 ERA), and for the Giants, Tyler Beede (0-2, 8.15 ERA).
