MADISON BUMGARNER… Became the 4th-youngest starter to win a World Series game as the Giants won Game 4 at Texas with a 4-0 shutout…only one starting pitcher younger than Bumgarner ever tossed 8.0-shutout innings in a World Series game – Jim Palmer, who was 100 days younger, in Game 2 of the 1966 World Series.

Check out today’s complete game notes, which contain more stats than boogie woogie fiddles.
