Snake Bytes: 9/16 - Narrowly Winning with Five Homers

Photo by John McCoy/ The Madison Bumgarner worries continue to mount.

This is 2020 though. Even that lead, with Madison Bumgarner on the mound, was not safe. Indeed, it was Bumgarner who faltered, allowing the game to be tied up before he exited. It took a fifth home run in the eighth, this one off the bat of David Peralta to finally seal the deal for Arizona. Calhoun Goes Deep Twice Against Old Mates Once...

Instead, they head into Thursday at 14-23 and in last place in the NL West. It’s been a disaster. There is one silver lining, though: They’ve got a staff...
