Giants ace Madison Bumgarner is doing his best to send Bruce Bochy out with a bang at Oracle Park.
Bumgarner kicked off Bochy's final homestand as San Francisco's manager with a moonshot home run to left field against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday.
Bumgarner has a reputation as one of the best hitting pitchers in MLB, and he lived up to it by doing something no other pitcher has in the nascent "Statcast" era.
The dinger was Bumgarner's second of the season and his first at Oracle Park since Sept. 3, 2017. It was the 19th of his career, and that total moved him into a tie for the 13th-most home runs by a pitcher in MLB history.
Bochy surely hopes Bumgarner's 20th gives the manager one final win on Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers before calling it a career. Bumgarner will take the mound for Bochy one last time that day.
