Muncy's home run the difference as Giants fall 1-0

Muncy's home run the difference as Giants fall 1-0

Los Angeles Dodgers' Max Muncy, left, gestures while running up the first base line after hitting a solo home run off of San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner, right, during the first inning of a baseball game in San Francisco, Sunday, June 9, 2019.

With two out and nobody on, Muncy launched a 426-foot shot into McCovey Cove. Bumgarner shouted at Muncy, "Don't watch the ball, run", before Muncy reached first base, and Muncy yelled back. Home plate umpire Will Little stood with Bumgarner to prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

"He struck a pose and walked further than I liked", Bumgarner said.

The fiery Bumgarner acknowledged he's struggling adapting to the new age of baseball with exaggerated bat flips and slow home run trots.

That wasn't even really an egregious look by Muncy, but, as noted, it's Bumgarner. There's a disagreement, a few words yelled back and forth, a resumption of play - usually without any drama - and then a deadpanned postgame interview.

Walker Buehler got the start on the mound and turned in one of his best outings of the season, blanking the Giants over seven innings.

I believe in you, Madison.

"Do your thing, I'll do mine", Bumgarner added, according to Ryan Gorcey of the San Francisco Examiner.

Pedro Baéz worked around a walk in the eighth, and Kenley Jansen struck out two in a flawless ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances to complete the Dodgers' major league-high ninth shutout this season. A one-run loss and one-run victory started and finished the series.

Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was scratched from the lineup because of a stomach illness.

Buster Posey, out with a strained right hamstring, has resumed hitting and ran on a treadmill Sunday.
