Giants

There's a reason Madison Bumgarner doesn't want the universal DH in baseball. The Giants ace reminded us again Tuesday night with a two-run homer against Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu. 

Left fielder Chris Taylor didn't move a muscle. This was a no-doubter.

The deep fly at Dodger Stadium put the Giants on the board in the sixth inning and cut their deficit to three runs.

It was Bumgarner's first home run since Sept. 3, 2017, in a 7-3 loss to the Cardinals. He now has 18 career home runs -- four against the Dodgers.

On a Giants team searching for offense, the starting pitcher just might be the answer. This isn't a joke, folks. 

Bumgarner's home run went 388 feet, with an exit velocity of 104 mph. He's now tied for the team lead in homers with ... one.

And seriously, just look at this bat drop. 

Here's to the Giants pitcher who rakes.
