Madison Bumgarner has been named the Giants' starter for next week's National League Wild Card game.
Bumgarner's next turn was slated to come up Sunday, but the Giants, not surprisingly, will hold him back for Wednesday's win-or-go-home game. "You've gotta love it," Bumgarner said about having that kind of pressure on his shoulders. "If you don't want a game like that, you're in the wrong business." The Giants have yet to name a replacement for Sunday's game, but Tim Lincecum is an option. Sep 26 - 9:10 AM

Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs over 7 1/3 innings to the Dodgers in Tuesday's loss.

Bumgarner homered in the third inning of the game and was allowed to bat for himself in the eighth inning, having already thrown 108 pitches. He struck out, and then gave up a homer to Justin Turner in the bottom half of the frame. Still, Bumgarner pitched well again at Chavez Ravine, where he entered 7-2 with a 1.90 ERA in career starts. Bumgarner has been on a serious roll since the beginning of August. He struck out five tonight to reset the Giants' record for most strikeouts in a season by a left-hander again. He now owns a 2.94 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 219/43 K/BB ratio in 217 innings this season. Bumgarner is scheduled to close out the season on Sunday in a home matchup against the Padres.

Madison Bumgarner held the Diamondbacks to two runs over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision.

San Francisco won the game in the top of the ninth inning on a pinch-hit two-run single from Matt Duffy. Bumgarner gave up seven hits and two walks, but he kept the D'Backs from inflicting serious damage over his six frames. He struck out six, and now owns a 2.91 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 214/43 K/BB ratio in 210 innings this season. A hugely-important road start against the rival Dodgers is next.

Madison Bumgarner defeated the Tigers in Detroit on Saturday despite not recording a strikeout for the first time in his major league career.

The All-Star left-hander allowed three runs on 10 hits in his six innings of work. He also didn’t walk a batter on the afternoon. All of the damage against him came via the longball, with Miguel Cabrera launching a two-run homer in the first inning and Victor Martinez tacking on a solo shot in the third. He’ll head into a critical matchup against the Dodgers on Friday with a 17-9 record, 3.02 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 199/39 K/BB ratio over his 197 innings on the season.

The 25-year-old has now won three straight and is 16-9 on the year. He'll take a 2.97 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 199/39 K/BB ratio into an interleague tilt with the Tigers in Detroit on Saturday.
Aug 31 - 9:25 PM

Madison Bumgarner hurled a one-hit shutout, striking out 13, in a 3-0 win versus the Rockies on Tuesday.

Justin Morneau broke up the perfect game with a leadoff double in the eighth inning down the right field line. It wasn't a bad pitch, either, as the veteran first baseman reached down for a pitch on the outer half and turned on it. No problem. Bumgarner calmly struck out the next four batters and got a couple harmless pop outs to finish things off. He came into tonight with a 5.86 ERA in his last six starts at AT&T Park. Bumgarner will attempt to carry over the mastery into Sunday's matchup against Milwaukee.
Aug 27 - 12:54 AM

Madison Bumgarner picked up his 14th win, allowing three runs in seven innings of work as the Giants topped the Cubs by a 5-3 margin on Thursday.

Bumgarner made all of his mistakes in the first inning, giving up a two-run home run to Justin Ruggiano followed immediately by a solo home run to Welington Castillo. From there, Bumgarner tossed six consecutive shutout frames. The lefty punched out a season-high 12 batters while allowing seven hits and a walk on the evening. He has a 3.17 ERA and a 179/38 K/BB ratio. Bumgarner will face the Rockies at home when he makes his next start on Tuesday.

Madison Bumgarner was denied a win after limiting the Phillies to one run and four hits in seven innings Friday.

It was 3-1 when Cole Hamels and Bumgarner finished up their evenings in the seventh, but Jeremy Affeldt gave up a two-run homer right away in the top of the eighth, letting Hamels off the hook. Bumgarner is 3-2 with a 2.14 ERA and a 39/5 K/BB ratio in 42 innings over six starts since the All-Star break.
Aug 16 - 2:01 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed four runs (three earned) in an eight-inning complete game loss to the Royals on Friday.

The game was tied until Bumgarner gave up two runs in the sixth. All told, the southpaw gave up seven hits (including a two-run homer to Billy Butler) and no walks while striking out five batters. He ended up throwing 123 pitches, just one shy of his career-high. Bumgarner now has three complete games this season, with two of them coming in losses.
Aug 8 - 11:29 PM

Madison Bumgarner was magnificent Sunday, holding the Mets to just two hits and one walk while recording 10 strikeouts in a 9-0 victory.

It was a "Maddux," as Bumgarner managed to complete the gem with 94 pitches in spite of the 10 punchouts. He even added a single and scored two runs just to rub it in. Bumgarner had lasted just four innings while surrendering five runs in his previous outing, but he rebounded in fine fashion Sunday. He'll take a 3.21 ERA into Kansas City next weekend.
Aug 3 - 4:06 PM

Madison Bumgarner was roughed up for five runs on six hits over four innings in a 5-0 loss to the Pirates on Monday.

He rode into this start on a three-start winning streak, having surrendered only one run over his last two. Bumgarner didn't bring his good stuff -- striking out two, walking two, and giving up a Josh Harrison solo homer -- but perhaps that isn't a surprise. After all, the southpaw hasn't been comfortable at home in 2014, entering this evening 4-5 with a 5.22 ERA in 10 outings at AT&T Park. He's now given up at least four earned runs in eight of 11 home starts. Luckily, Bumgarner will toe the rubber Sunday in New York against the Mets.
Jul 29 - 12:53 AM

Madison Bumgarner shut the Phillies out over eight innings, picking up his 12th win on Wednesday.

Bumgarner had to sit through a rain delay but the Phillies were still no match for the talented left-hander when he came back out to finish his start. He allowed just five hits while walking zero and striking out six. Bumgarner has won three starts in a row and now has a 3.19 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and 141/34 K/BB ratio. He'll open up a series at home against the Pirates in his next start.
Jul 23 - 11:18 PM

Madison Bumgarner tossed six innings of one-run ball in a 9-1 win over the Marlins on Friday.

The lone run scored on a solo home from Giancarlo Stanton in his final inning of work. He probably could have pitched deeper, but there was no need to push it with such a big lead. All told, Bumgarner gave up just four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. He now owns a 3.38 ERA on the year to go along with 11 wins. He'll get the Phillies on the road next week.
Jul 18 - 10:37 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up 10 hits and four runs over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks didn't have many issues hitting Bumgarner, but he was able to control the damage enough to earn his 10th win. That was largely due to the grand slam Bumgarner hit in the sixth inning to help his own cause. The break comes at a good time for the lefty, who's allowed 19 runs in his last four starts. Bumgarner is more talented than his recent starts would indicate, and he should improve upon his 3.47 ERA in the second half.
