The Giants are facing the Braves today. Madison Bumgarner is on the hill. Unfortunately for the Braves, he’s also in the batter’s box. I say unfortunately, because Bumgarner is the rare pitcher who is a serious home run threat. He had 12 in his career coming into today.
Now he has 13, as he smacked one off of Braves starter Aaron Blair in the 5th. And it wasn’t a cheapie. It was estimated at 411 feet and went deep into the left field stands. Watch:

Blair was handing out a lot of homers today. Joe Panik and Buster Posey each hit one as well. Neither of theirs went as far, though. Nope, MadBum’s was most mighty.
