It was a busy day at AT&T Park today. When the Reds and Giants were rained out on July 4th no one knew how strange it would get. Officially the second game tonight became the first game of a traditional doubleheader. In the second game the Giants were officially the away team, and wore the road grays, (but statistically the Giants were the “home team” for both games) so you could say the road team won both games tonight.
In case that wasn’t enough, the second game was the 100th of the season AND Bruce Bochy got his 1,500th career win. Only 20 managers have reached that milestone and 12 are in the Hall of Fame…among current managers, only Detroit’s Jim Leyland (1,731) and Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker (1,638) have more managerial wins than Bochy (1,500).

TONIGHT’S GAME…The San Francisco Giants visit the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1st game of this 3-game series…Giants’ left-hander Madison Bumgarner (13-7, 2.97) will face Dodgers’ left-hander Clayton Kershaw (11-6, 2.90).
Another Franchise Record hit the dust tonight when Madison Bumgarner pitched the fourth Giants shutout in a row. With great defense by the Giants, the Reds were only able to get one hit, but the Giants were able to score 5 runs on their 9 hits, including a blast by Bumgarner in the 7th inning. Bumgarner recorded his 10th win of the season, and with the Dodgers loss tonight the Giants are alone in first place for the first time this season.
