Giants' Madison Bumgarner gives up two runs vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner allowed two earned runs on six hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out six but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 3-2 win over the Dodgers Wednesday.

Bumgarner blanked the Dodgers for six innings before surrendering a two-run homer to Alex Guerrero in the seventh. The Giants were still able to secure the victory thanks to a walkoff sacrifice fly by Joe Panik in the bottom of the ninth.

Bumgarner owns a 4.63 ERA and 17:4 K:BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings. He'll get a rematch with the Dodgers Monday.


Giants' Bumgarner gives up four runs, two home runs Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner surrendered four earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out four but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 7-6 loss in extra innings to the Diamondbacks Thursday.

Bumgarner surrendered two home runs in the game, with Mark Trumbo hitting a solo shot in the second inning and Paul Goldschmidt slugging a three-run homer in the fifth to put Bumgarner in line for the loss, but the Giants were able to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. He hadn't allowed a home run in either of his first two starts of the season.

Bumgarner owns a 5.29 ERA and 11:2 K:BB ratio in 17 innings going into Wednesday's scheduled start against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.


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.
