Madison Bumgarner delivered another strong performance in Friday's victory over the Pirates, allowing three runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.

The All-Star southpaw racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking one. He also had his hitting prowess on display again on Friday, swatting a two-run homer off Jeff Locke in the second inning, his fifth of the season. Now 15-6 on the year, he'll carry a 3.02 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 180/28 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Cubs.

Madison Bumgarner did everything in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Nationals, striking out 14 in a complete game while also homering and driving in two.

Bumgarner made the universe his own on Sunday. On the pitching side of the ledger, he allowed just three hits and struck out 14 Nationals over nine innings. On the hitting side, he notched an RBI double in the fifth inning off Nationals starter Joe Ross, then launched a solo home run in the seventh. Bumgarner's hit four long balls this season while pitching to a 2.98 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 174/27 K/BB ratio across 163 1/3 innings. His last two starts have seen 26 strikeouts and two complete games. He'll look to make it three straight complete games on a road date with the Pirates next time he takes the ball.
Aug 16 - 7:12 PM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 12 Astros and gave up only one run in a complete game win on Tuesday.

Bumgarner scattered five hits and walked none along with the 12 punch-outs. The Astros scored their lone run in the seventh on a Chris Carter RBI single. The lefty has held the opposition to exactly one run in four of his last five outings. He'll head into a home start against the Nationals with a 3.15 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 160/26 K/BB ratio over 154 1/3 innings.
Aug 12 - 12:56 AM

Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Wednesday against the Braves to win for the 12th time this season.

It's exactly what Bumgarner should have done against the putrid lineup the Braves ran out there tonight with Freddie Freeman on the DL. Bumgarner struck out nine and walked none.
Aug 6 - 12:21 AM

Madison Bumgarner was tagged for six runs over seven innings in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Bumgarner gave up a two-run homer to Adrian Beltre in the first inning and a four-spot in the second. Frustration appeared to boil over for him in the fourth inning, as he incited a benches-clearing incident after Delino DeShields flipped his bat on a pop-up. Bumgarner settled down from there, but the damage was already done in this one. The southpaw fanned eight and walked none in the loss and now sits at 11-6 with a 3.39 ERA on the year. He'll face the Braves next Wednesday on the road.
Aug 1 - 12:52 AM

Madison Bumgarner fired seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Giants' 2-1 defeat of the A's.

Bumgarner helped his own cause with a solo home run in the bottom of the third inning. The only blemish on his afternoon was a Josh Phegley RBI double in the top of the fourth. Bumgarner struck out seven, yielded only five hits, and will carry an 11-5 record, 3.16 ERA, and 1.10 WHIP into his next scheduled start on the road against the Rangers.
Jul 25 - 7:12 PM

An elevated pitch count forced Madison Bumgarner from the game after just five innings in Sunday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

The All-Star southpaw allowed just one run on four hits over his five frames, walking one and striking out three. He needed 93 pitches to get those 15 outs though, and was forced to rely on four innings from his bullpen to secure his 10th victory. He'll head into Saturday's start against the Athletics with a 3.27 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 124/24 K/BB ratio over 124 innings.
Jul 19 - 7:16 PM

Madison Bumgarner was tagged for a season-high six runs over five-plus innings Saturday in a loss to the Braves.

Bumgarner was charged with the final two runs after he was replaced by Yusmeiro Petit in the sixth. The southpaw gave up eight hits (including two home runs in the first inning) while walking one and striking out four. His ERA jumped from 2.99 to 3.34 in the loss. He'll have a good chance to bounce back next week against the Phillies.
Jul 4 - 2:37 PM

Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball and hit his second homer Sunday against the Rockies.

Bumgarner struck out eight in winning for the eighth time this year. He's fanned 49 batters over his last five starts, walking just seven in the process. He's also up to eight career homers now. With two hits today, he's hitting .234 this season and .250 with six homers in 100 at-bats since the beginning of 2014.
Jun 28 - 8:08 PM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 14 Padres on Tuesday, but he was left with nothing to show for it after giving up two runs in 7 1/3 innings.

Both runs scored on Will Venable's double in the eighth. It was just the fifth hit off a lefty for Venable this season (he doesn't start against lefties, and he had come off the bench tonight as part of a double-switch). The 14 strikeouts were a new career high for Bumgarner; he fanned 13 Padres in Sept. 2011 and matched that total in a start against the Rockies last year. He's the first NL pitcher to strike out 14 in a game his team lost since the Phillies' Roy Halladay in 2011.
Jun 24 - 2:28 AM

Despite allowing just two runs over eight innings to the Mariners on Wednesday, Madison Bumgarner was stuck with the loss in a 2-0 defeat.

Bumgarner fanned nine and gave up just four hits, but a two-run sixth inning that saw an RBI triple by Austin Jackson and an RBI double by Robinson Cano was all the Mariners needed with Felix Hernandez on the mound. The loss dropped Bumgarner to 7-4. He's the owner of a 3.09 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 88/17 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. Up next, a home start against the Padres as he tries to get back into the win column.
Jun 18 - 12:40 AM

Madison Bumgarner pitched eight innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Bumgarner gave up five runs and won last time out, so he can't really complain about this one. It's just his third loss of the year and first that's come in a quality start.
Jun 13 - 2:01 AM

Madison Bumgarner yielded five earned runs over eight innings Saturday in a win over the Phillies.

Bumgarner was pitching pretty well until the bottom of the fourth inning, when Jeff Francoeur launched a grand slam. Andres Blanco then cranked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. Bumgarner struck out 11 and walked none to finish with a very odd pitching line. He'll try to do a better job of run prevention next week against the Diamondbacks.
Jun 6 - 6:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings during Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Bumgarner struck out six and walked just one. The big blow against the ace came in the form of a two-run homer by Juan Uribe in the seventh inning. The homer made the score 3-2 in a game that the Braves would ultimately win 7-5. Despite the rough moment here and there, Bumgarner's been moving steadily along through the season and currently holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 61/13 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings. He'll try to continue his good run of pitching when he faces the Phillies next Saturday afternoon.
