      <p>The San Francisco Giants get one last game before they face their NL division rival North park Padres in one last three-game battle before the NL West division crown is decided (cro s your fingers for any 163rd game). At this point within the season, with three or four games left on the schedule for most teams, a couple.0 game lead is an unsafe lead or perhaps a sizable mountain to climb depending on that you are rooting for. For Bay area, Giants fans see this afternoons matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks as a must-win when they wish to set aside the Padres for good. When the Giants win today and also the Padres lose, North park will have to sweep San Francisco at AT&T Park this weekend in order to force a one-game playoff. </p><p>This afternoon Dustin Vaughan Jersey s start by the left-handed rookie Madison Bumgarner may be the most important bet on the season for the Giants, at least as much as this point. A pitcher (legally permitted to drink under two months ago) being handed the reins to a pivotal game, Bumgarner has put together quite a fine season, with a 6.71 K/9, 2.12 BB/9, 3.06 ERA, and 3.77 FIP. Bumgarner is looking for his first career win in your own home today, all six wins standing on the street this year.</p><p>When Bumgarner was taken 10th overall within the 2007 draft, he apparently only had a plus fastball and very little else. Since then, hes quickly developed two breaking balls Dermontti Dawson Jersey along with a changeup, putting himself on the fast track to the Major Leagues. Based on his pitch type values, Bumgarners best pitches this year happen to be his changeup (wCH/C of 2.88 changeup runs per 100 pitches) and his curveball (wCB/C of 1.60 curveball runs per 100 pitches).</p><p>Lets have a deeper take a look at all of his pitches and how he has fared against batters this season, looking at both swinging strikes and balls place in play. First up, lets take a look at Bumgarners fastballs:</p><p>Youll have to click on the image to get a closer look. Ive added the amount of pitches Bumgarner has thrown for every pitch type to get an idea of the sample size. Bumgarner throws a 91 MPH fastball, also it appears like his fastball receives a decent number of swinging strikes. When Bumgarner throws fastballs to LHH, he goes outside a bit more, rarely throwing inside, while fastballs against RHH drop the middle of home plate. Many of these fastballs they fit in play, which might increase the proven fact that Bumgarners fastball Jacob Hagen Jersey run value is not as high as his breaking ball pitches. Lets take a look at Bumgarners sliders:</p><p>Bumgarner comes with an 85 MPH slider with good vertical and horizontal movement. Taking a look at where he throws the slider, they seem pretty uniform between RHH and LHH, even though it appears like he goes low and inside to RHH quite a bit, that has allowed him to get swinging strikes. Bumgarner faces much le s LHH, so its hard to tell who whiffs more about his sliders because of the sample size. Lets look at the curveballs:</p><p>Now this looks interesting, although some caution should be posted right away when looking at the sample sizes. Still, its interesting that Bumgarner locates his 75 MPH curveball all over the strikezone and out of the zone much more against LHH, inducing swinging strikes totally on low and outdoors curveballs to LHH. Against RHH, he has a tendency to keep the curveball within the plate or on the outside (which has more horizontal movement Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey than it does vertical movement), sometimes going down underneath the zone where hes gotten several swinging strikes. Finally, lets take a look at Bumgarners changeup, that has been his best pitch this year in terms of run value:</p><p>This L-R usage split is key. Bumgarner only has thrown 23 changeups against LHH all season, but has thrown almost six times as numerous against RHH. Granted, left-handed pitchers tend to face lineups filled with right-handed batters far more than left-handed, but its still quite a wide split. He’s gotten a number of swinging strikes against RHH and locates his 83 MPH changeup down and away, sometimes out of the zone on the exterior to RHH or underneath the zone. </p><p>Against the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight, Bumgarner will face a few left-handed batters in Stephen Drew, Kelly Johnson, and Adam LaRoche. Search for Bumgarners curveballs against these batters, as the rest of the lineup will likely see his changeup Miles Dieffenbach Jersey a couple of times as his punch-out pitch through the game.</p>
