Madison Bumgarner pitched another outstanding ballgame on Sunday night, firing 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a victory over the Cubs.
Bumgarner allowed just three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six on the night. He worked his way out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning and was basically untouchable the rest of the evening. He also contributed with the stick, plating the game's lone run with an RBI double in the fifth inning. Now 6-2 on the season, he'll carry an outstanding 2.31 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 77/20 K/BB ratio into a tough matchup against the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday. May 22 - 10:48 PM

Madison Bumgarner tossed a complete game gem in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Padres, striking out 11 and limiting San Diego to just five hits.

This was Mad-Bum's first complete game and second double-digit strikeout performance through nine starts. He shut out the Padres over eight innings before Matt Kemp played spoiler in the ninth when he hit a solo moonshot to prevent his squad from being blanked. That served as cosmetic window dressing and nothing more. Bumgarner will carry a 2.45 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 71/18 K/BB ratio (58 2/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a nationally televised Sunday night home showdown with the Cubs.
May 18 - 1:34 AM

Madison Bumgarner pitched well in a Wednesday no-decision against the Blue Jays, firing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Bumgarner allowed just three hits while striking out five. Just about the only sour note on his afternoon came in the form of the walk. He issued four free passes, the most he has handed out in a start since Opening Day. The ace southpaw has pitched to a 2.72 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 60/18 K/BB ratio across 49 2/3 innings. He has bumped up his K/9 each of the last three seasons and entered action on Wednesday whiffing 11.5 per nine. That mark would stand as the best of his career if the season ended today. Bumgarner will hit the road to do battle with the Padres in his next scheduled start.
May 11 - 8:23 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed four runs -- three earned -- in 7 1/3 innings and struck out 10 in a win over the Rockies on Friday.

Bumgarner gave up four runs in the second, but he was very strong over the rest of the night. It's his first 10-strikeout game of the year. He's fanned 55 in 43 innings on the season.
May 7 - 1:06 AM

Madison Bumgarner fired six shutout innings in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mets.

Nice work by Bumgarner, who scattered six hits, struck out seven and walked three over the course of his time on the mound. While he has pitched inconsistently in places through his first six starts, Mad-Bum still holds a 3.03 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/13 K/BB ratio. If he can move that WHIP closer to his career mark of 1.12, it would almost certainly help to ease some of the ups and downs he has experienced thus far. A home start against the Rockies shows next on his schedule.
May 1 - 4:47 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two runs in 6 2/3 innings and struck out nine in a defeat of the Padres on Monday.

Bumgarner has fanned a whopping 38 batters in 29 2/3 innings to date. It's not helping him work deep into games; he's finished seven innings once in five starts and he's yet to pitch into the eighth. Fortunately, the Giants have a strong bullpen to preserve those leads when he departs.
Apr 26 - 2:15 AM

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

Bumgarner didn't make many mistakes in this one, but the 0-2 fastball that Welington Castillo drilled for a two-run homer in the seventh qualified as a big one. It was still the best he's looked so far this year, even if he fell to 1-2. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out eight.
Apr 21 - 1:29 AM

Madison Bumgarner was charged with seven runs -- four earned -- in five-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

The Giants committed three errors behind Bumgarner, two of them by Kelby Tomlinson, who was making a rare appearance at shortstop with Brandon Crawford hurting. Bumgarner's other problem was Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice and doubled off him. If only Crawford had been in the field and Hernandez had been on the bench, it could have been a much different night for Bumgarner. He finished up with seven strikeouts and one walk in the outing.
Apr 16 - 2:43 AM

Madison Bumgarner fired six innings of one-run ball Saturday in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

He also slugged a solo shot off Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the second inning -- Bumgarner's second career home run against the Dodgers ace. Bumgarner struck out eight, issued just one walk, and scattered six hits -- three of them singles. He left the game with the Giants leading, but closer Santiago Casilla blew the save in the ninth and Los Angeles wound up winning in extras. Bumgarner will take on the Dodgers again next week.
Apr 9 - 8:15 PM

Madison Bumgarner got the win Monday as the Giants pounded the Brewers on Opening Day in Milwaukee.

Bumgarner was getting over the flu (and a rough spring training) and he didn't look like himself on the Miller Park mound, surrendering three earned runs on five walks and five hits. But the Giants' offense went off for 12 runs -- five against Wily Peralta -- in a loud season-opening victory. Bumgarner gave up home runs to Scooter Gennett, a left-handed-hitter, and Jonathan Villar, who had just two homers last year in 53 games with Houston. Look for the big southpaw to show better this weekend in a duel with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Apr 4 - 5:58 PM

Madison Bumgarner was being treated for flu symptoms on Sunday.

He is going to make his Opening Day start Monday in Milwaukee, though Giants manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that he'll be watching his ace closely. Bumgarner didn't have the sharpest spring and could fatigue easily in his Opening Day start, but he's a rare breed of workhorse and season-long fantasy owners should absolutely stay the course. Those playing DFS games might want to make a switch.
Apr 4 - 12:33 PM

Madison Bumgarner acknowledged he's been struggling with his mechanics this spring.

Bumgarner turned in a clunker on Saturday (2 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER) but said his struggles had nothing to do with his recent oblique and foot injuries. "My delivery was terrible," he said. "My timing is off, and my rhythm." Bumgarner said he began noticing the flaw in his delivery over the winter and is still tinkering with his mechanics. Nobody is expecting Bumgarner to be in midseason form on March 19. Fantasy owners shouldn't be overly concerned.
Mar 19 - 8:41 PM

Madison Bumgarner (foot, oblique) was knocked around in his return to the mound Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings against the A's.

Bumgarner, who is dealing with a sore left foot and a sore right oblique, gave up a home run among his seven hits allowed. He struck out four. What does it mean? Nothing, likely. But owners would surely like to see a better showing from the southpaw before the team heads west for Opening Day.
Mar 19 - 7:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner (foot, oblique) said Thursday that he's on track to return to Cactus League action on Saturday.

The Giants said that the southpaw would miss 1-2 starts with a sore left foot and sore right oblique, and it sounds like it will be just one outing. "We’re still taking it one day at a time, but as far as I know, we’re still on track for Saturday," said Bumgarner. "It’s tough because it’s not a lot of fun to get treatment and get worked on. If you’re going to miss some time, you might as well make it as short as you can by taking care of it."
Mar 18 - 11:50 AM

Madison Bumgarner (foot, ribs) could start Saturday.

Bumgarner was administered a cortisone injection in his sore left foot earlier this week and it has apparently done the trick. He's also been feeling some oblique discomfort since his last Cactus League outing, but an MRI taken over the weekend showed no structural damage. The ace left-hander should be fully ready to rock come Opening Day.
