Madison Bumgarner Takes Clayton Kershaw Deep

Clayton Kershaw dominated last season. Madison Bumgarner dominated last postseason.

When they met on Thursday, the World Series MVP got the better of the reigning NL MVP.

Bumgarner sent a two-out, first-pitch fastball about ten rows deep into the left-field bleachers in the third inning at AT&T Park. The dinger was just Bumgarner’s second hit of the year and the eighth home run of his career.

The blast marks the first home run by a pitcher off Kershaw.

Bumgarner’s no-doubt-about-it solo shot gave him all the run support he needed. Hunter Pence knocked in two insurance runs and Brandon Crawford added another RBI to propel the Giants to a 4-0 win.

The Giants sweep of the Dodgers puts San Francisco just 1.5 games behind Los Angeles for the lead in the AL West.
