San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner is known for being one of the best pitchers in baseball, but during an Opening Day game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, he was doing his best work at the plate.

MadBum set an MLB record for most Opening Day home runs by a pitcher, with two.  His first homer was a 410-foot shot to left-center off Zack Greinke in the fifth inning, while his second (a 404-foot shot) came off Andrew Chafin in the seventh.  He also recorded a walk in his only other plate appearance.

In addition to the two homers, Bumgarner pitched seven innings, giving up six hits and three earned runs while striking out 11.  He handed his bullpen a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning, but they blew it and eventually lost by a score of 6-5.

Here’s a look at both of MadBum’s Opening Day homers:
