Giants manager Bruce Bochy has named Barry Zito his NLCS Game 5 starter.
That was the indication he had given, but now it’s official. Madison Bumgarner will be used in relief for the remainder of the series. “I think we feel it’s time to get Madison a little break,” Bochy said. Zito allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over just 2 2/3 innings against the Reds in the NLDS.
