Breaking down Madison Bumgarner

The Giants saved their ace for the Wild Card game. Though Madison Bumgarner has been a snot-rocket champion for some time, and a top pitcher, he’s turned it up a notch the last two seasons. A couple adjustments — one in approach and the other in mechanics — seem to have fueled this latest improvement. […]

WATCH: Bumgarner hits Puig, leading benches to clear

In the first inning of Tuesday’s Giants-Dodgers game, Madison Bumgarner hit Yasiel Puig in the ankle with a pitch. The two then had words, and some brief chaos erupted at Dodger Stadium. No one was ejected, and tempers were quickly diffused. Two batters later, Matt Kemp launched his 24th homer of the year to score Puig and make it 3-0 Los Angeles. Bumgarner one-upped the situation...
