Madison Bumgarner picked up his fifth victory of the season on Thursday, scattering seven hits over 6 1/3 scoreless innings against the Dodgers.
The reigning World Series MVP punched out six on the afternoon and walked two. He out-dueled opposing left-hander Clayton Kershaw and even helped out his own cause by taking Kershaw deep for a solo homer to get the Giants on the board in the third inning. Off to another fantastic start this season, Bumgarner will carry a 2.84 ERA and 53/10 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee. May 21 - 7:40 PM

Madison Bumgarner improved to 4-2 on the year after allowing two runs over seven innings against the Reds on Friday.

The only damage came on solo home runs from Zack Cozart and Billy Hamilton. Otherwise, he was very solid. The southpaw gave up eight hits in all while walking none and striking out four. He has allowed three earned runs or fewer in five straight starts, lowering his ERA to 3.20 for the year. The division-rival Dodgers await him next week.
May 15 - 10:30 PM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 in five innings Saturday, but he gave up three runs in a loss to the Marlins.

Bumgarner was coming off two dominant outings, but he had one bad inning tonight, giving up all three runs in the fourth. He wasn't at his best over the rest of the game -- it took him 99 pitches to get through five -- but he's still looking quite a bit better now than he did in early April.
May 10 - 1:16 AM

Madison Bumgarner flirted with a no-hitter in Monday's win against the Padres, tossing 7 1/3 scoreless innings.

Justin Upton singled to lead off the seventh inning, ending Bumgarner's attempt at a no-hitter. Yangervis Solarte followed up with a single himself, but Bumgarner saw himself out of the no-out jam with no further damage. They were the only two hits he allowed. He issued only one walk while striking out six. The lefty has put together back-to-back dominant outings, lowering his ERA to 3.03. Bumgarner also owns a 1.06 WHIP with a 32/6 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Marlins at home next.
May 5 - 1:02 AM

Madison Bumgarner dominated the Dodgers in a win on Tuesday, yielding just one run over eight innings.

The Dodgers pushed across their only run in the fourth inning on a Howie Kendrick ground out. It was that kind of night as Bumgarner was dominant, giving up just five hits and a walk while striking out nine. The Giants and fantasy owners alike are glad to see a return to form as Bumgarner entered the start with a 4.63 ERA over his first four outings. Now with a 3.73 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 26/5 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings, the lefty looks ahead to a home match-up with the Padres.
Apr 29 - 1:12 AM

Madison Bumgarner struck out six and allowed two runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

This was an improvement on Bumgarner's last two starts, in which he surrendered five runs to the Padres and four runs to the Diamondbacks. Against the rival Dodgers, he wasn't touched up for a run until a pinch-hit, two-run homer by Alex Guerrero with one out in the seventh knotted the score at 2-2. Neither Bumgarner, nor opposing ace Clayton Kershaw, factored into the decision, as the Giants would ultimately win on a walk-off sac fly by Joe Panik. Bumgarner's numbers have been decidedly mediocre thus far and it was nice to see him finally put up a stronger outing. There's nothing inspiring about his current 4.63 ERA or 1.37 WHIP, but those numbers should settle soon enough. Bumgarner will face the Dodgers again next time out.
Apr 23 - 2:16 AM

Madison Bumgarner took a no-decision against the Diamondbacks Thursday by surrendering four runs on six hits across seven frames.

Bumgarner struck out four and walked one. He's looked a bit off in his past few starts, losing to the Padres by giving up five runs on 10 hits in three innings on Saturday before tonight's mediocre showing. Hopefully this outing, his first of the year at home, doesn't portend (relative) struggles to come. Though Bumgarner was mostly dominant last year, he was surprisingly susceptible at home, posting a 4.03 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.
Apr 17 - 2:43 AM

Madison Bumgarner lost to the Padres after giving up five runs and 10 hits in three innings on Saturday.

Bumgarner blamed poor mechanics for the off night, though even with the poor showing, he finished with four strikeouts, no walks and no homers allowed. He was more than just unlucky, but the beating didn't have to be as bad as it was.
Apr 12 - 2:46 AM

Madison Bumgarner limited the Diamondbacks to one run on seven hits, leading the Giants to an Opening Day victory on Monday.

Bumgarner, as expected, delivered a strong performance. The only run he allowed scored in the third inning when Mark Trumbo drove in a run from first base with a triple. Bumgarner walked one and struck out three. He'll face the Padres at Petco Park his next time out.
Apr 7 - 1:36 AM

Madison Bumgarner was sharp in his final Cactus League outing Wednesday, allowing one run while striking out four over four innings of work.

Bumgarner scattered five hits and didn't walk a batter in the outing. His Cactus League ERA sits at 4.91, not overly impressive but not terribly important now that spring is over, either. Bumgarner is looking to carry momentum over after one of the most dominant postseasons ever for a pitcher.
Apr 1 - 6:59 PM

Madison Bumgarner looked strong on Sunday, limiting the Angels to one run on one hit over six innings.

The only run and hit come on an Albert Pujols solo home run in the first inning. Bumgarner issued no walks and struck out five, lowering his Cactus League ERA to 5.65 in the process. The spring results haven't been there, but there aren't any questions as to whether or not he can reprise his 2014 performance, which resulted in finishing fourth in NL Cy Young balloting.
Mar 22 - 6:39 PM

Madison Bumgarner looked strong in Tuesday's Cactus League tuneup, allowing one run on three hits in his two innings of work.

Bumgarner walked one and fanned three on the afternoon, the lone damage against him coming on a solo home run by Brandon Drury. While he sports an unsightly 8.64 ERA on the spring season, he remains one of the top overall hurlers in the league and a very popular target in the early rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mar 17 - 10:52 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two runs -- one earned -- across 2 2/3 innings versus the White Sox on Thursday.

MadBum struck out three, didn't walk anyone and permitted three singles. The reigning World Series MVP is off to a slow start this spring, posting a 9.95 ERA through three outings. However, it's no cause for concern at this point.
Mar 12 - 9:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two runs in two innings in Saturday's Cactus League match-up against the Padres.

Both runs came in the second inning on three singles. Overall, Bumgarner gave up four hits, walked none, and struck out one. He has been slow to start, having also given up four runs in 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday, but it's far too early to start worrying about the lefty.
Mar 7 - 6:53 PM

Madison Bumgarner was touched up for four runs over just 1 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

Bumgarner surrendered a double, a triple and a home run among the five hits he permitted. The lefty had a huge workload in 2014 between the regular and postseason, but we'll only become worried if he starts to have a few of these kinds of outings when the regular seasons begins.
