“I usually demeanour brazen to going out there each fifth day. None of them’s any different,” Bumgarner said. “I know it’s not a unequivocally fun answer, though it’s a truth. we usually adore going out there pitching and competing — not indispensably any some-more since it’s opposite Kershaw.”
Bumgarner, who homered opposite Kershaw for a second time in their prior matchup, led off a third with a singular and scored on a bases-loaded furious representation to Posey. Hernandez minimized a repairs with a diving locate of Posey’s falling liner.
