Bumgarner To Start Game Two For Giants PDF Print
Written by Staff Reports

The San Francisco Giants have released their pitching rotation for the World Series, which begins tonight at AT&T Park in San Francisco. And Giants manager Bruce Bochy has announced that

Madison Bumgarner will get the starting nod in game two Thursday night against the Detroit Tigers.
Bumgarner, a 16-game winner this season, has struggled mightily in the playoffs. The left hander, who was an all-stater at South Caldwell High School, is 0-2 in post-season play with an astronomical 11.25 earned-run-average.
He's given up ten earned runs in eight innings, including two home runs. Righty Ryan Vogelsong will pitch Game 3 and Matt Cain will go in Game 4. Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will remain in the bullpen, providing options. 
All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera will not be added to the roster, according to Bochy. Cabrera received a 50-game suspension Aug. 15 for a positive testosterone test and was eligible to return for the NL championship series. San Francisco insisted he wouldn't come back this postseason.
Barry Zito goes for the Giants against Justin Verlander of the Tigers in game one tonight at 8 p.m. EDT.
