Madison Bumgarner lost Tuesday's duel with the Dodgers, giving up four runs (three earned) over 5 2/3 innings.

Opposing starter Clayton Kershaw wasn't to be trifled with; there was very little Bumgarner could have done to win on Tuesday. He gave up three home runs, accounting for three of his five hits, and he walked one while striking out six. The lefty still has impressive numbers on the year, carrying an 18-9 record with a 2.93 ERA, a 1.01 WHIP, and a 234/39 K/BB ratio over 218 1/3 innings. Bumgarner could make one more start to finish out the season but with so many innings under his belt, the Giants are likely to make Tuesday's his final start.
Sep 30 - 1:07 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy on Monday wouldn't commit to Madison Bumgarner making his second scheduled start this week.

Bumgarner will start Tuesday against the Dodgers and is currently on tap to go on Sunday versus the Rockies. However, Bochy said he would reconsider after Tuesday's outing whether to start his ace again. Fantasy owners should probably be prepared to have Bumgarner shut down after Tuesday.

Madison Bumgarner took a tough loss after allowing two runs -- one earned -- over eight innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Bumgarner also couldn't have been thrilled that Jarrett Parker pinch-hit for him in the eighth. After all, he did enter the night with five homers and a .760 OPS. Bumgarner dropped to 18-8 with a 2.84 ERA with the Giants getting shut out in the game. He went 0-for-2 at the plate.
Sep 19 - 2:25 AM

Madison Bumgarner pitched a one-hitter Saturday as the Giants beat the Padres 8-0.

It was a perfect game until Melvin Upton Jr. singled off the bench in the eighth. Bumgarner struck out nine and threw 111 pitches in his fifth career shutout. Surprisingly enough, it's the first of his 10 career complete games to come against the Padres. He's now 18-7 with a 2.91 ERA this season, which should be good for some fourth- and fifth-place Cy Young votes.
Sep 12 - 11:55 PM

Madison Bumgarner picked up his 17th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Rockies to four runs on nine hits over his six frames.

He punched out three and walked one on the afternoon. Even on a day where he clearly didn't have his best stuff, Bumgarner was able to keep the Rockies hitters off-balance and pitch out of trouble when he needed to for the most part. He'll head into Saturday's start against the Padres with a 3.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 203/32 K/BB ratio through 188 2/3 innings on the season.
Sep 6 - 7:55 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up two runs in seven innings but lost to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Bumgarner was opposite Zack Greinke, who pitched just a little bit better. The Dodgers plated a run in the third inning on an Adrian Gonzalez single, and Joc Pederson added what proved to be a crucial run with a seventh-inning solo home run. Overall, the lefty allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out eight. Bumgarner will bring a sterling 2.96 ERA with a 1.03 WHIP and a 200/31 K/BB ratio over 182 2/3 innings into a start at Coors Field against the Rockies.
Sep 2 - 1:05 AM

He is in the midst of another brilliant season, compiling a 2.97 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 192/30 K/BB ratio over 175 2/3 innings. He'll head in search of his 17th victory when he does battle against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Aug 27 - 7:08 PM

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.
Aug 21 - 11:07 PM

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

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.
