Bumgarner (11-5) lowered his ERA to 3.16 with the dominant showing on Saturday. He was not only a difference maker on the mound, as he belted his third home run of the season in the third inning to give the Giants a 1-0 lead. It was Bumgarner's ninth home run of his career.

Saturday's performance was his finest since June 28. He had not pitched more than 5 2/3 in any of his three starts since then.

The Giants will go with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson and Chris Heston once they return to the field. This leaves starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the odd man out in the rotation, which will push him into the bullpen.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner pitches scoreless All Star inning


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Giants SP Madisom Bumgarner gets ninth win in 15-2 rout Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Backed by more-than-enough run support on Friday, Giants ace Madison Bumgarner picked up his ninth win of the season in the 15-2 rout of the Phillies on Friday. The left-hander went 5 2/3 innings, yielding two runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out seven. 

The Giants were already up by a large margin when Bumgarner was lifted for a reliever with two outs in the sixth, leaving him ineligible for a quality start. He left after throwing 103 pitches.

Mad-Bum even helped himself in this one, going 2 for 3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored.

Bumgarner served up a solo home run to Carlos Ruiz in the fourth inning, and an RBI single to Domonic Brown in the sixth, the only blemishes on his evening. 

Bumgarner (9-5) has now failed to go at least six innings in consecutive starts for the first time since August 2013. He heads into the All-Star break with a 3.33 ERA

Giants SP Madison Bumgarner allows six runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner got rocked early in his outing against the Nationals on Saturday.

Bumgarner gave up three runs in the first inning after allowing home runs to Bryce Harper and Michael Taylor. Overall, Bumgarner threw five innings, allowed eight hits and six earned runs while throwing 86 pitches. He picked up his fifth loss of the season.

"He got ambushed," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said, per MLB.com. "They came out swinging. It's a case of a pitcher trying to get settled and they jumped on a couple of mistakes."

Bumgarner (8-5) has a 3.34 ERA with 114 strikeouts and 21 walks in 113 1/3 innings this season.


Giants SP Madison Bumgarner cruises to eighth victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 2/3 strong innings Sunday to power the Giants past the Rockies to earn his eighth win of the season, in addition to crossing the 1,000 strikeout barrier. 

Bumgarner gave up two runs on a first-inning homer by Nolan Arenado, but settled down after that, scattering five hits while striking out eight and walking just two. 

The Giants ace, who hasn't allowed more than two runs in each of his last four starts, ended a modest two-game losing streak to improve to 8-4 and lowered his ERA to 2.99. For good measure, Bumgarner cracked his eighth career home run, and his second of the season, in the seventh inning. 


Giants' Madison Bumgarner gives up two runs in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Giants starter Madison Bumgarner gave up just two runs over 7 1/3 innings in a hard-luck no-decision on Tuesday. 

Bumgarner left with the score tied at two. He gave up just five hits, walked one and struck out a career-high 14. 

Despite allowing two runs or less and pitching more than seven innings in each of his last three starts, Bumgarner has not won since June 6.

"It’s a shame," manager Bruce Bochy said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. "You look at the last three starts, the way he’s pitched, and we couldn’t win any of them."

Bumgarner's next start is Sunday, against Colorado. 


Giants SP Madison Bumgarner superb in loss on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/18/2015) Giants ace Madison Bumgarner was excellent in a tough-luck loss on Wednesday. The left-hander went the distance, throwing eight innings in the 2-0 loss to the Mariners in Seattle. Bumgarner allowed two runs on four hits, walking one and striking out nine. He threw 112 pitches, with 75 going for strikes in the gutsy effort.

The Giants's offense was unable to get anything going against Felix Hernandez, leaving Bumgarner with his fourth loss of the season. Both runs Bumgarner gave up came in the sixth inning on a pair of RBI doubles.

Bumgarner (7-4) has pitched exactly eight innings in each of his last three starts, allowing eight earned runs over that span. He'll look to snap his two-game losing streak in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday at home against the Padres.


Giants SP Madison Bumgarner takes tough-luck loss on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Giants starter Madison Bumgarner turned in an excellent performance on Friday against the Diamondbacks. Unfortunately for him, he was outdueled by Chase Anderson, as the Giants took the 1-0 loss. 

Bumgarner went eight innings, allowing just one run on nine hits. He walked three and struck out seven. The only run of the game came in the second inning thanks to an RBI single by Ender Inciarte. 

Bumgarner (7-3) will carry a 3.16 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Seattle.


Giants SP Madison Bumgarner shaky, but picks up 7th win


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Madison Bumgarner wasn't at his best Saturday, but the Giants ace did enough to improve to 7-2 on the season in the Giants 7-5 victory over the Phillies. 

Bumgarner went eight innings, but tied a season-high in allowing five earned runs. He did, however, strike out a season-high 11 batters while giving up two home runs. 

"I can't throw much better and I gave up five runs," Bumgarner said. "I'll take throwing the ball that way anytime."

Bumgarner has now won four straight decisions, although his ERA did rise a tick to 3.38. 


Madison Bumgarner gives up three runs in no-decision for Giants


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Giants starter Madison Bumgarner gave up three runs in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against Atlanta on Sunday. 

Bumgarner allowed five hits and walked one, striking out six. A two-run homer in the seventh inning prevented him from leaving the game with the lead. 

"I had some balls leak over the middle," Bumgarner said to CSN Bay Area. "You can get away with them here and there, but you can't expect to against big league hitters. They're going to make you pay if you make mistakes."

Bumgarner's next start will be Saturday, at Philadelphia.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner merely mediocre in Saturday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The good news for Giants ace Madison Bumgarner is that he struck out a season-high 10 in just five innings Saturday night - including Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton three times.

The bad news is that he is now 3-2.

The defeat came courtesy of a terrible fourth inning in which Bumgarner yielded all three of his runs on a Marcell Ozuna homer and doubles by Jeff Baker and Adeiny Hechavarria. He pitched shutout ball in his other four innings, but it took him a whopping 99 pitches to get through it.

Bumgarner, who raised his ERA to 3.30 in his worst outing since April 16, is set to make his next start Friday against host Cincinnati.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

This is the first time all season that Bumgarner has gone through his time in a game without allowing an earned run. The superb outing drops his ERA to 3.03 of the season. He's now 3-1 for the season. 

Bumgarner only allowed two hits against the Padres and had a no-hitter through six innings. He struck out six batters and walked one. 

Bumgarner's next start is projected for Saturday against the Marlins.

Bumgarner won his first decision since Opening Day. Over his last two meetings against the Dodgers' ace, Bumgarner has allowed only three earned runs over 14 1/3 innings. He owns a 3.73 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP and 26:5 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. He'll look for win No. 3 Monday at home vs. San Diego.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

History against D-Backs working in Madison Bumgarner's favor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) The Giants kick off a four-game series with the Diamondbacks on Thursday, with ace Madison Bumgarner taking the hill in the series opener. The World Series hero is looking to rebound Thursday following a loss in his last outing against the Padres, as he allowed five runs on 10 hits in three innings.

Facing the Diamondbacks could be the perfect remedy for Bumgarner since he has had a lot of success against the NL West foe. In his career, he is 7-4 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 19 appearances (18 starts) against Arizona. Since 2013, he is 4-1 with a 1.70 ERA, 52 strikeouts and 13 walks in 10 starts.

Bumgarner started Opening Day against the Diamondbacks, allowing one run on six hits and one walk in seven innings. He struck out three and hit two batters.

The Giants are favored (-164) in Thursday's matchup.


Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner last just three innings Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner struggled in his start Saturday against the Padres. Bumgarner allowed five runs on 10 hits in just three innings of work in San Francisco's 10-2 loss. 

Bumgarner, who also added four strikeouts, got touched up for two runs in the first inning on three singles and a Matt Kemp double. Then in the third, Bumgarner allowed five singles, four consecutively, leading to three more runs.

"I was a little off. I got a little side to side and out of my delivery and I was just battling to put pitches where I wanted to. I just wasn't very effective," Bumgarner said to Mercury News. "I've got to get that squared away. I don't think it'll take a lot. I looked at video and it shouldn’t be a difficult fix.

"Everything kind of flattened out a little bit. You lose some of your crispness on pitches, if that’s a word I can use. That’s part of pitching: you’ve got to keep on top of it. It cost us tonight. I can’t afford to have sloppy little mental mistakes. I’ve got to give us a chance to win."

His ERA bounced up to 5.40 on the season. He will look to bounce back Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
