TONIGHT’S PITCHING MATCHUP… Will be a rematch of the April 22 contest here at Coors, where LHP Madison Bumgarner (5-3, 3.25) matched up with LHP Franklin Morales (3-3, 5.40)…Bumgarner suffered the defeat in that game despite going the distance in SF’s 2-1 loss…he became the second pitcher in Coors Field history to throw a complete game, allow two runs or fewer and su! er the loss, joining Jason Jennings in 2006…Morales meanwhile earned the win, logging 7.0 innings while allowing just a solo homer to OF Hunter Pence.
