Madison Bumgarner was rocked for 10 hits and six runs in five innings of work in a loss to Chicago on Sunday.

He walked one and struck out four. It's back-to-back starts for the normally ever-so-reliable Bumgarner. He gave up a homer to Jose Abreu, and didn't have his normally crisp command. It raises his ERA to 3.55 and drops his record to 3-and-8. His next scheduled start is Sunday in San Francisco against the Diamondbacks.
Sep 10 - 5:41 PM

Madison Bumgarner had a rough afternoon in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, giving up five runs on five hits over his six frames.

Bumgarner fanned five and walked two on the afternoon. He struggled to keep the ball in the yard in this one, surrendering solo homers to Paul DeJong and Jose Martinez in the fourth inning and another to Harrison Bader in the fifth. On the offensive side, he did help his own cause though by clubbing his third home run of the season. He'll try to get back on track on Saturday against the White Sox in Chicago.
Sep 3 - 7:03 PM

Madison Bumgarner (illness) will start Sunday against the Cardinals.

Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled outing Thursday due to the flu, but he got a couple extra days to rest and is now ready to go. Chris Stratton will pitch Monday in Colorado, provided he's not needed in relief Sunday. He'll be followed by Ty Blach, Johnny Cueto and Matt Moore.
Sep 3 - 10:06 AM

Madison Bumgarner (flu) won't rejoin the Giants' rotation until Sunday at the earliest.

Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled start on Thursday and apparently has been under the weather for a few days now. Hopefully the illness passes and he's able to take the hill on Sunday.
Aug 31 - 9:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled start against the Cardinals on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms.

Matt Cain will start in his place. Those in daily leagues, feel free to fire up those Cardinals bats at what is sure to be much lower ownership than they should be. Bumgarner should be fine to return in a day or two.
Aug 31 - 6:48 PM

Madison Bumgarner took a tough loss after allowing two runs over seven innings Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

The runs came on homers from A.J. Pollock and J.D. Martinez. Bumgarner has to be pretty use to getting no support at this point; he's now 3-6 with a 2.85 ERA this season. He's turned in quality starts in five of his six losses, allowing two runs or fewer in four of them.
Aug 27 - 12:33 AM

Madison Bumgarner was terrific in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday, racking up seven strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

Bumgarner allowed just four hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only blemish on his day was an RBI double by Pedro Florimon in the second inning. He departed in line for his fourth victory of the season (after his own go-ahead RBI single in the fifth), but the Giants' bullpen was unable to oblige. Bumgarner will bring a 2.87 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 74/14 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Aug 20 - 7:29 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs over six innings in a victory Tuesday against the Marlins.

Bumgarner got some rare run support tonight, as the Giants scored more than three runs for just the third time in his 11 starts this year. He's now 3-5 with a 2.99 ERA. He allowed a total of two runs in his previous two wins.
Aug 15 - 11:09 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one run on four hits over seven innings in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Cubs.

Bumgarner was up to his accustomed brilliance in this one, striking out seven and walking just one. The only run to score on his watch came when Albert Almora Jr. bopped a solo home run off the ace in the third inning. Mad-Bum finished up his afternoon's work having thrown an economical 92 pitches (69 strikes). He has surrendered just four runs in his last four starts (26 innings) and will try to keep this roll going in a road start against the Marlins next time he takes to the mound.
Aug 9 - 7:10 PM

Madison Bumgarner fell to 1-5 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

If he hasn't already, Bumgarner is going to be lobbying Bruce Bochy to hit higher in the lineup in his starts. Tonight's game was the fourth time in his nine starts this season that the Giants scored one or no runs. They've totaled just two in two others. That's what it takes to produce a 1-5 record along with a 2.88 ERA.
Aug 5 - 1:18 AM

Madison Bumgarner was terrific in Sunday's no-decision against the Dodgers, allowing just five hits and a walk over seven shutout frames.

The star southpaw fanned seven on the night. He has continued to improve each time out and looked to be in vintage form against one of the most potent offenses in all of baseball. He'll carry a 2.92 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 49/9 K/BB ratio into Friday's showdown against the Diamondbacks.
Jul 31 - 12:06 AM

Madison Bumgarner will start for the Giants against the Dodgers on Sunday in place of Matt Cain.

The two hurlers are simply flipping spots in the Giants' rotation. Bumgarner hasn't been himself since returning from the disabled list, but did pitch better in a victory over the Pirates his last time out.
Jul 29 - 2:49 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one earned run, six hits and a walk with four strikeouts across five innings to nail down his first win of the season Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Bumgarner has had a strange and bumpy road this season. Normally his first victory comes in the first or second start of a new campaign, but he dropped his first four decisions and also missed two months due to a shoulder injury. He is starting to pitch like his normal ace-like self, posting a 1-1 record and 3.92 ERA over three outings since returning from the 10-day disabled list. He is likely to continue trending in a positive direction as he builds up his stamina.
Jul 26 - 4:29 AM

Madison Bumgarner surrendered four runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Making his second start since being activated from the disabled list after missing three months of action due to a dirt-biking shoulder injury, Bumgarner struck out five and walked one. He pitched well enough on the whole, but Hunter Renfroe and Cory Spangenberg both cracked two-run homers off the ace, with Spangenberg's seventh-inning shot snapping a 2-2 tie. Bumgarner has allowed five runs on 10 hits while posting a 10/3 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 frames in his two outings since the All-Star break. He will next take the ball in a home start against the Pirates as he works to shake off any remaining rust from the long layoff.
