Rematch: Madison Bumgarner and James Shields

In game one of the 2014 World Series the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals each put forth the ace of their pitching staffs in Madison Bumgarner and James Shields to start the game. 

The Bumgarner easily won round one and when the two matched up again in game five he pitched even better, beginning a scoreless inning streak that won him the title of World Series MVP.

With Shields now on the San Diego Padres these two will be matching up more than twice this season. Game one of the Shields vs. Bumgarner matchup turned out quite differently than their World Series matchups.
