With the Giants season not going particularly well a month into Bruce Bochy’s final year managing, games where they’re able to put up a lot of runs is crucial to have a shot at contention and a lot to stay relevant on the radar for Bay Area sports fans with both the Warriors and Sharks deep into their respective playoff races. The Oakland A’s also happened to get a no hitter with Mike Fiers on the mound as they beat the Reds 2-0. With the Giants tied for last place in the National League West with the Colorado Rockies at 16-20, and things not looking to promising what game to start making some offense happen then a game a series opener at Coors Field against those same Colorado Rockies with Madison Bumgarner on the mound. Madison showed signs of his old dominant self pitching 6 innings with 8 stikeouts and only giving up 3 runs (2 of them on homeruns from Charlie Blackmon and Chris Iannetta). The big stort was Mac Williamson in his first game of the season after being called up from Triple A hitting the 3 run homer in the top of the 4th inning. Following Williamson’s homerun, Brandon Crawford singled which was followed by Kevin Pillar hitting a 2 run homer making it 6-1. Evan Longoria had previously hit a solo homerun in the top of the 2nd inning. Mac Williamson and Madison Bumgarner’s successful night and the Giants gaining some ground on the Rockies made for some action that the Giants were looking for in 2019!
