Diamondbacks beginning pitcher Madison Bumgarner quit a crowning achievement to lead off the bottom of the very first inning versus the Marlins in Miami on Wednesday in matinee action. He then tape-recorded 3 outs, however would not make it into the dugout prior to being ejected from the video game. 

Bumgarner seemed a bit less-than-enthused over a minimum of one call from home base umpire Ryan Wills. The occurring now-standard “sticky stuff” check of his hands led to a fast exchange of words prior to Bumgarner got the heave-ho from very first base umpire Dan Bellino. The veteran lefty was warmed and required to be limited. 

To the action video: 

The Diamondbacks would react with an 8-7 win, on the strength of a five-run 3rd inning, to sweep the Marlins. 

Both Bumgarner and the Diamondbacks have actually been rolling, remarkably, of late. The D-Backs began 3-8 after entering into the season anticipated to be among the worst groups in baseball, however they have actually now won 10 of their last 15 and have actually evened things up at 13-13. 

After the video game, Bumgarner decreased to discuss the specifics of what was stated. 

“I know why I got thrown out, yes,” he stated (by means of Bally Sports Arizona). “I don’t know if I can say anything that would make the situation better, so what I’m gonna say is I’m extremely proud of our team coming back and winning today because I put us in a big hole there. Obviously you didn’t go into the game with the intention of throwing one inning, so for them to be able to fight and everyone picked me up today, for that to happen that’s pretty incredible. Very proud.” 

“You’ve seen the video,” was almost all he would state about the ejection. 

Bumgarner, 32, had a 5.07 period in 35 starts in his very first 2 years with Arizona, however up until now this season in 6 starts, he’s pitched to a 1.50 period and 1.13 WHIP in 24 innings.
