Madison Bumgarner allowed four runs (three earned) in an eight-inning complete game loss to the Royals on Friday.

The game was tied until Bumgarner gave up two runs in the sixth. All told, the southpaw gave up seven hits (including a two-run homer to Billy Butler) and no walks while striking out five batters. He ended up throwing 123 pitches, just one shy of his career-high. Bumgarner now has three complete games this season, with two of them coming in losses.

Madison Bumgarner was magnificent Sunday, holding the Mets to just two hits and one walk while recording 10 strikeouts in a 9-0 victory.

It was a "Maddux," as Bumgarner managed to complete the gem with 94 pitches in spite of the 10 punchouts. He even added a single and scored two runs just to rub it in. Bumgarner had lasted just four innings while surrendering five runs in his previous outing, but he rebounded in fine fashion Sunday. He'll take a 3.21 ERA into Kansas City next weekend.
Aug 3 - 4:06 PM

Madison Bumgarner was roughed up for five runs on six hits over four innings in a 5-0 loss to the Pirates on Monday.

He rode into this start on a three-start winning streak, having surrendered only one run over his last two. Bumgarner didn't bring his good stuff -- striking out two, walking two, and giving up a Josh Harrison solo homer -- but perhaps that isn't a surprise. After all, the southpaw hasn't been comfortable at home in 2014, entering this evening 4-5 with a 5.22 ERA in 10 outings at AT&T Park. He's now given up at least four earned runs in eight of 11 home starts. Luckily, Bumgarner will toe the rubber Sunday in New York against the Mets.

Madison Bumgarner shut the Phillies out over eight innings, picking up his 12th win on Wednesday.

Bumgarner had to sit through a rain delay but the Phillies were still no match for the talented left-hander when he came back out to finish his start. He allowed just five hits while walking zero and striking out six. Bumgarner has won three starts in a row and now has a 3.19 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and 141/34 K/BB ratio. He'll open up a series at home against the Pirates in his next start.
Jul 23 - 11:18 PM

Madison Bumgarner tossed six innings of one-run ball in a 9-1 win over the Marlins on Friday.

The lone run scored on a solo home from Giancarlo Stanton in his final inning of work. He probably could have pitched deeper, but there was no need to push it with such a big lead. All told, Bumgarner gave up just four hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. He now owns a 3.38 ERA on the year to go along with 11 wins. He'll get the Phillies on the road next week.
Jul 18 - 10:37 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up 10 hits and four runs over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks didn't have many issues hitting Bumgarner, but he was able to control the damage enough to earn his 10th win. That was largely due to the grand slam Bumgarner hit in the sixth inning to help his own cause. The break comes at a good time for the lefty, who's allowed 19 runs in his last four starts. Bumgarner is more talented than his recent starts would indicate, and he should improve upon his 3.47 ERA in the second half.
Jul 13 - 9:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed six runs on 10 hits over seven innings in a loss against the A's on Tuesday.

Bumgarner punched out three and walked a trio. Mad Bum has now given up four earned runs or more in four of his last five starts, a stretch that has seen his ERA shoot from 2.67 to 3.36. He's lost three straight games but still owns a solid 1.23 WHIP and 123/32 K/BB ratio over 120 2/3 innings this year. Bumgarner toes the rubber against the Diamondbacks in the first half finale on Sunday.
Jul 9 - 1:12 AM

Madison Bumgarner didn't have his best stuff Thursday, yielding five runs -- four earned -- over five innings in a loss to the Cardinals.

Mad Bum surrendered six hits -- including a home run -- while walking three, needing 100 pitches to get through the five frames. His defense didn't help him, especially in the fourth inning when Adam Duvall threw away a would-be double-play ball that cost him three runs. It was Bumgarner's shortest start in his last nine efforts. The lefty will try to bounce back next week in Oakland and then at home versus the D'Backs.
Jul 3 - 7:18 PM

Madison Bumgarner took a shutout into the ninth inning and finished with only an unearned run allowed over eight in the Giants' 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Bumgarner was given a chance to go for the complete-game shutout, but an error and a single prompted manager Bruce Bochy to go to closer Sergio Romo to finish the game instead. Still, it was a stellar start for the 24-year-old, as he allowed just two hits and two walks on the afternoon. Bumgarner struck out seven in the outing. He's got a terrific 9-4 mark, 2.63 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 111/25 K/BB ratio over 102 2/3 innings this year. He'll face the Reds on Friday.
Jun 23 - 12:16 AM

Madison Bumgarner allowed four runs on six hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.

Bumgarner struck out nine, but he also walked four in the outing. He left in line for his ninth win, but the bullpen allowed four runs to saddle him with a no-decision instead. Still, the left-hander owns a 2.85 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 104/23 K/BB ratio over 94 2/3 innings. He'll take another shot at getting that ninth win Sunday at the Diamondbacks.
Jun 15 - 9:45 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs over seven innings, striking out five, in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

This was the first time he'd given up more than one run in a start since May 20, and the first time he'd lost since April 28; he'd gone 6-0 in that span. Bumgarner hasn't issued more than one free pass since the aforementioned start on April 28. The ace left-hander falls to 8-4 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Bumgarner faces an explosive offense Sunday when the Rockies come to town.
Jun 11 - 1:23 AM

Madison Bumgarner tossed eight innings of one-run ball as the Giants topped the Reds on Thursday.

Bumgarner served up a first-inning home run to Todd Frazier but settled in quickly after that, yielding just three total hits on the day. He struck out five batters and did not surrender a walk. The ace left-hander is 8-3 with a 2.68 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 90/18 K/BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings this season for the NL West-leading Giants. Bumgarner gets the Nationals at home next time out.
Jun 5 - 3:33 PM

Madison Bumgarner fanned 10 batters over seven scoreless frames in a 9-4 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Bumgarner was dominant, allowing just three hits and one walk. The 24-year-old has allowed just one run in 14 innings over his last two starts while putting up a ridiculous 20/1 K/BB ratio. Remember his early-season hiccups? Yeah, neither do we. He'll carry a 2.85 ERA into a start against the Reds next week on the road.
May 31 - 12:49 AM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 over seven innings, allowing one run, in a win over the Twins on Sunday.

Bumgarner was in fine form, as he allowed just three hits and didn't walk a batter in his seven innings of work. After a stretch of three straight losses in late April, Bumgarner still hasn't lost in May. Overall, he's 6-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 75/17 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Cardinals in St. Louis on Friday.
