Who says pitchers can’t hit?
The season is just one day old and San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner has notched his first home run of the season. A bomb into the left-center field seats at Chase Field. Per Statcast, the ball had a max speed of 112.5 mph, averaging out at 93.1 mph. Bumgarner’s bomb was also the first home run by a National League player this season.
With a no-hitter through four innings, Bumgarner isn’t doing all that bad on the mound either. The Giants lead the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0 through four innings.
