Former South Caldwell High product Madison Bumgarner, who was the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the year with the Augusta (Ga.) GreenJackets last season, made a strong debut with his new team, the San Jose Giants, the advanced-Class A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants in the California League on April 10th.
The left-hander threw six scoreless innings, scattered two hits and struck out five without walking a man as San Jose beat Stockton, 4-0. Bumgarner only threw 62 pitches. Bumgarner was a first-round draft choice of the Giants, and the tenth pick overall, in the 2007 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
