Madison Bumgarner was victimized by the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday afternoon at Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ. The left hander only lasted four innings and coughed up four earned runs on seven hits in first start of the year. He walked two, struck out three and he served up a pair of home runs
in a 5-4 loss. Aaron Hill was Bumgarner's biggest nemesis as homered twice and drove in three runs. But slow starts are nothing new for Bumgarner, who began the year losing his first five decisions in 2011 before he rebounded to finish the season at 12-12 record and a 3.21 earned-run-average......And Cameron Maybin, who played at T.C. Roberson High, belted the seventh longest home run in San Diego Padres' history with a 445-foot blast on opening day, April 5, at PETCO Park in San Diego in a 6-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Maybin, who was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the first-round (10th pick overall) of the Major League Baseball Draft in 2005, has played in the Tigers, Miami Marlins and San Diego organizations. Last year as a member of the Padres, Maybin played in 137 games with nine home runs, 41 extra base hits, including eight triples, 40 runs-batted-in and a .264 batting average.
