Madison Bumgarner sounds close to a philosophical breakthrough

Oracle Park view

Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy and Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner exchanged some words and gestures in a freaky scene during Sunday's game at Oracle Park.

Bumgarner (3-6) left a 92 miles per hour fastball high over the plate to Muncy, who crushed the ball 426 feet into the waters past the walkway beyond the right field wall. Bumgarner shouted at Muncy, "Don't watch the ball, run", before Muncy reached first base, and Muncy yelled back. When Bumgarner turned around, he saw that Muncy was still at the plate, and that's when he began jawing at the Dodgers slugger, telling him he needed to pick it up and get around the bases.

At least now we know it's not just Puig that annoys Bumgarner. Bumgarner took exception to it, and the two exchanged words.

"He just struck a pose and walked further than I liked", Bumgarner said. He didn't toss his bat, and he didn't stare Bumgarner down until Bumgarner engaged him.

I would say something like "fair enough", but there's a gap there.

Bumgarner looked like an idiot yelling at Muncy and, quite frankly, he needs to grow the hell up.

I believe in you, Madison.

Kenley Jansen (S, 19, 2-1, 3.04 ERA) saved the shutout easily and the Giants were put to bed and handed a series loss.

Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was scratched from the lineup because of a stomach illness. San Francisco got back-to-back singles leading off the sixth but Mike Yastrzemski was run down from behind by catcher Austin Barnes trying to scramble back to third on Pablo Sandoval's grounder to third. Still, the Dodgers never seem to play their best in San Francisco no matter how bad the Giants are.

Buster Posey, out with a strained right hamstring, has resumed hitting and ran on a treadmill Sunday.
