Giants defeat the Braves six to nothing on June 2. Madison Bumgarner was the winning pitcher. Giants lost
a costly game on June 1. Hunter Pence was injured and placed on the 15 day disabled list.
Madison Bumgarner, Joe Panik and Buster Posey all hit two-run home runs in the Giants’ six-run fifth inning…it’s the second time this season that the Giants have hit three home runs in one inning…they also did it on Opening Day at Milwaukee on April 4 (Span, Panik, Posey – Top 8).
Before today, the Giants had never hit three two-run home runs in the same inning (exactly two runs) (Stats, Inc.).
This is the fourth time the Giants have had three multi-run home runs in the same inning…the last time was May 7, 2007 against the Mets in the fifth inning.
