Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs in six innings on Friday, only to pick up a win by hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs against the Rockies.
Bumgarner had a sac fly in the third and then hit the slam an inning later off Jorge De La Rosa. It was his second career homer, and it made him the first pitcher in five years to drive in five runs in a game. The last was Chris Carpenter, who had six RBI in a game in 2009. Before him, Jason Marquis did it in 2008 and Micah Owings did it with two homers and six RBI in a game in 2007. Apr 12 - 1:56 AM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 batters over 6 2/3 innings Saturday as the Giants beat the Dodgers 7-2.

The Dodgers stacked their lineup with right-handed hitters and got to Bumgarner for two runs on eight hits. But the Giants' ace left-hander still racked up a double-digit strikeout total and did enough to lead San Francisco to its fifth win of the season -- the most in the National League. Bumgarner will get the Rockies at home next time out. He is 1-0 with a 1.74 ERA.
Apr 5 - 8:11 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up four unearned runs over just four innings Monday in his season debut against the Diamondbacks.

Bumgarner threw 78 pitches over his first four innings and was pulled for a pinch-hitter with runners on second and third in the top of the fifth. He struck out three and walked a pair before exiting. Things should only get better from here.
Apr 1 - 9:28 AM

Madison Bumgarner had a stellar performance in Friday’s Cactus League Victory over the Rockies, scattering two hits over five scoreless innings of work.

The 24-year-old southpaw punched out four while walking one in the impressive outing. He’s now tossed 10 scoreless frames to begin the spring season, posting a 7/1 K/BB ratio in the process. While he isn't as flashy as most of the perceived upper-echelon hurlers, Bumgarner can safely be selected as an ace in fantasy drafts.
Mar 14 - 7:16 PM

Madison Bumgarner tossed three scoreless innings against the Rockies on Tuesday.

The Giants' Opening Day starter added another fine outing to his 2014 spring log, allowing just two hits while striking out one. The lefty has yet to allow a run in five innings in the Cactus League thus far.
Mar 4 - 4:56 PM

Madison Bumgarner looked strong in his Cactus League debut against the Brewers on Friday, firing two scoreless innings while allowing only one hit.

Bumgarner struck out a pair without walking a batter in the game. The 24-year-old hurler has shown significant improvement during each of his four seasons, and looks poised to join the game's elite starting pitchers in 2014.
Feb 28 - 10:10 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Madison Bumgarner will start Opening Day against the Diamondbacks on March 31.

Bochy said he opted for Bumgarner over Matt Cain because he wanted to reward him for his outstanding 2013 campaign. This will be the first Opening Day assignment of his career.
Feb 25 - 3:03 PM

Madison Bumgarner will be shut down for the rest of the season.

Bumgarner's 201 1/3 innings are actually a touch below what he threw both in 2011 and 2012, but the out-of-contention Giants have decided that that's enough. It ends the lefty's best season as a pro, as he finishes with a 2.77 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 199 strikeouts. Barry Zito will start in his place Wednesday.

Madison Bumgarner threw seven innings of one-run ball in the Giants' 2-1 win over the Mets on Thursday.

It was a dominant effort from Bumgarner, who yielded just four hits -- three of which were singles -- and struck out 10. The 24-year-old left-hander boasts a 13-9 record, 2.77 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 199/62 K/BB ratio in 201 1/3 innings this season. He should top the 200-strikeout plateau for the first time in his career next week against the rival Dodgers.

Madison Bumgarner coughed up two runs on five hits over six frames in a victory against the Dodgers on Friday.

Bumgarner made only one mistake, a Juan Uribe two-run bomb in the sixth inning that staked the Dodgers to a 2-0 lead. Fortunately for Bumgarner, the Giants scored three runs in the top of the seventh, just before he was scheduled to exit the game. The left-hander, who improved to 12-9 with a 2.83 ERA, hasn't surrendered more than three earned runs in a start since June 1. He has a date with the Mets next week.

Madison Bumgarner delivered another outstanding performance against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, allowing just four hits and fanning nine over six shutout innings.

Bumgarner departed with a 2-0 lead, but the Giants' bullpen was unable to protect his lead. Despite his stellar 2.82 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 183/57 K/BB ratio over 188 1/3 innings of work, he sits at just 11-9 on the season in large part to poor run support. He'll try again for his 12th victory when he squares off against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday.

Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs on five hits over six frames in a no-decision against the Padres on Tuesday.

He struck out six and walked two. Bumgarner has strung together an amazing 16 straight starts without allowing more than three earned runs in a start. It's startling to realize that the Giants are 1-8 in his last nine starts; Bumgarner allowed one run or less in four of those outings.
Wed, Sep 4, 2013 01:47:00 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs on seven hits over eight innings in a loss Friday against the Pirates.

He struck out five and walked four. Bumgarner allowed a homer -- Clint Barmes' three-run jack in the seventh that ruined his night -- for the second straight start after he'd strung together six straight homer-less outings. The right-hander drops to 11-8 with a 2.84 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.

Madison Bumgarner coughed up four runs on five hits over five innings Sunday against the Marlins.

He struck out three while permitting four walks in the no-decision. Bumgarner is 0-1 over his last three starts despite facing mediocre competition in the form of the Brewers, Nationals and Fish, respectively. He's posted a decent 3.52 ERA in four starts this month, however, so we aren't concerned about him. Bumgarner remains 11-7 with a 2.87 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.

Madison Bumgarner allowed just one run over four frames but was removed after a rain delay in Tuesday’s loss to the Nationals.

He struck out four while permitting five hits and a walk. It ends a streak that saw Bumgarner go at least seven innings in 10 straight starts, though obviously it’s not his fault that run came to an end. He’ll take a sparkling 2.73 ERA and 0.99 WHIP into Miami this weekend.
