• Giants tab Bumgarner for Game 1 of NLCS

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Oct 15, 2012
    In the wake of yet another poor start from Madison Bumgarner in Game 1 of this series, Giants manager Bruce Bochy suggested that the team wasn’t committed to letting Bumgarner take his next turn in Game 5. Madison Bumgarner will start Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, and Ryan Vogelsong will take the mound in Game 2 for the Giants, the team announced on Saturday. And Bumgarner clearly has manager Bruce Bochy's backing, considering not only is he giving the 6-foot-5 lefty the ball in Game 1, but that would set him up for a potential Game 5 start as well one that could be a clincher or an elimination game. Score and situation: The St. At 4-0, it already felt like it would be a difficult road for the Giants to come all the way back. As for Lincecum, while he has been outstanding in relief in the postseason, he was lit up in his last two starts in the regular season and given his season-long struggles, there’s no guarantee that his short-stint success will translate back into the larger role.
