Bumgarner still up for Game 4 despite 'pen stint
PHILADELPHIA -- For the second night in a row, left-hander Madison Bumgarner was available for relief duty in the National League Championship Series against Philadelphia.But manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that if Bumgarner somehow were to appear in Game 2, the rookie still would be ready to start Game 4 on Wednesday at AT&T Park. "With days off before his start, he would still be available," Bochy said of Bumgarner, who threw briefly in the bullpen Saturday. Bumgarner made 18 appearances this year, all starts. He posted a 7-6 record with a 3.00 ERA.
Ross racking up heady historical numbers
PHILADELPHIA -- So far this postseason, Cody Ross has established himself as the top clutch hitter in either league.The Giants outfielder has four go-ahead RBIs, twice as many as the next players on the list -- the New York Yankees' Lance Berkman, Texas' Josh Hamilton and Atlanta's Brian McCann. Ross' total is the highest in Giants franchise history for a single postseason, though keep in mind that the postseason consisted only of the World Series through 1968. The League Championship Series was added in 1969 and the Division Series started in 1995. Ross also has three game-winning RBIs, joining Barry Bonds (2002) as the only other Giant to accumulate that many, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. With his effort Saturday in the Giants' 4-3 Game 1 victory, Ross became the second player to homer twice in his LCS debut. Minnesota's Gary Gaetti (1987) was the only other player to accomplish this. "I just try to take pride in going up there every single at-bat and trying to get something going for my team, whether it's drawing a walk or hitting a home run," Ross said.
