Madison Bumgarner loses in first home start since April

- SAN FRANCISCO — It used to be a Madison Bumgarner start meant the San Francisco Giants almost assuredly would find the win column.

    BATON ROUGE — In this city on the east bank of the Mississippi River, Rebekah Gee, Louisiana’s health secretary, presides over what she calls the “public-health-crisis cradle” of America. Poverty and poor health collide here to produce some of the nation’s worst rates of obesity, premature birth and other maladies. Those problems are deep-rooted and hard to solve. The easy one, at least in theory, is hepatitis C, a liver-damaging virus frequently contracted by injection-drug users that can cause cirrhosis and cancer
