Madison Bumgarner is set to make his second start of the season today against Max Scherzer. In his first start, Bumgarner came up to bat with bases loaded and I think I’m not alone in really, really wanting to see him hit one out.
I was watching with my dad, who didn’t remember that Bumgarner has two career grand slams, both in the 2014 season. So, in case anyone else forgot, let’s take a look back at those.
Later that season, in a game in July, Buster Posey hit his second career grand slam, which was quickly followed by Bumgarner’s second career grand slam. It was a hell of a game.
May the baseball gods grant him another opportunity again today.
