Madison Bumgarner strikes out season-high 9 in D-backs win over Nats

Nationals No. 9 hitter Victor Robles hit a solo home run to left field and the left-handed starter didn’t appreciate Robles’ celebration.

“He’s a clown. Golly. No shame. No shame,” Bumgarner said. “It’s 7-1, you hit your third home run of the year, you act like Barry Bonds breaking the record. Clean it up. I don’t care about giving up the run. Hell, we won 7-2. That’s frustrating. I’m the old grumpy guy, I know, but that type of stuff didn’t used to happen. Now, that’s ridiculous.”

“He’s been throwing the ball very well in Reno,” manager Torey Lovullo said of Martin. “He’s been working hard. It hasn’t been an easy road or him. We know that but when it happens, it happens fast and I think he’s connected some things and we’re excited to have him here and see what he can give us.”
