August 19, 1986
The Giants face the Dodgers with both teams battling for a postseason slot and aces Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner opposing each other on the mound. Kershaw, recently back from a lengthy stay on the disabled list, gives up only one run in 6 innings, but Bumgarner is better, as he allows no runs on one hit while striking out 10 in 7 innings. However, he gets into a verbal clash with Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig at the end of the 7th, both benches clear, and when the 8th inning gets underway, it’s reliever Will Smith who is pitching. With Bumgarner out of the way, the Dodgers rally for two runs in the last two innings and walk off with a 2 – 1 win on Adrian Gonzalez’s run-scoring double in the 9th.
