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

Five years ago, after one of several dustups with Yasiel Puig, Bumgarner kept a straight face as he told reporters he was just congratulating Puig for his home run and bat flip and he wasn't sure what the Dodgers right fielder had said back because his Spanish was rusty.

"He struck a pose and walked further than I liked", Bumgarner said. He was upset he made a bad pitch.

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

Bumgarner trailed off as he fought to stifle a grin, but in those words, there was something serious, too, something baseball should consider as the game changes.

That wasn't even really an egregious look by Muncy, but, as noted, it's Bumgarner.

The moment came when Muncy was behind, 2-1 in the count. Kenley Jansen came on to pitch the ninth, recording his 19th save. It's part of San Francisco Bay. A one-run loss and one-run victory started and finished the series. Here are three takeaways from the weekend series in San Francisco.

Mike Yastrzemski led off with a single, the first Giants leadoff hitter to reach base.

Giants first baseman Brandon Belt was scratched from Sunday's starting lineup against the Dodgers after coming down with a stomach illness. Stephen Vogt and Kevin Pillar, with runners on first and second, then lobbed flyballs to left and center, respectively, to end the Giants' best threat. Buster Posey (right hamstring strain) ran on a treadmill before the game and will run the bases during Monday's off day.

Dodgers: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-1, 1.35 ERA) pitches against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.
