Madison Bumgarner was tagged for a season-high six runs over five-plus innings Saturday in a loss to the Braves.

Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball and hit his second homer Sunday against the Rockies.

Bumgarner struck out eight in winning for the eighth time this year. He's fanned 49 batters over his last five starts, walking just seven in the process. He's also up to eight career homers now. With two hits today, he's hitting .234 this season and .250 with six homers in 100 at-bats since the beginning of 2014.

Madison Bumgarner struck out 14 Padres on Tuesday, but he was left with nothing to show for it after giving up two runs in 7 1/3 innings.

Both runs scored on Will Venable's double in the eighth. It was just the fifth hit off a lefty for Venable this season (he doesn't start against lefties, and he had come off the bench tonight as part of a double-switch). The 14 strikeouts were a new career high for Bumgarner; he fanned 13 Padres in Sept. 2011 and matched that total in a start against the Rockies last year. He's the first NL pitcher to strike out 14 in a game his team lost since the Phillies' Roy Halladay in 2011.

Despite allowing just two runs over eight innings to the Mariners on Wednesday, Madison Bumgarner was stuck with the loss in a 2-0 defeat.

Bumgarner fanned nine and gave up just four hits, but a two-run sixth inning that saw an RBI triple by Austin Jackson and an RBI double by Robinson Cano was all the Mariners needed with Felix Hernandez on the mound. The loss dropped Bumgarner to 7-4. He's the owner of a 3.09 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 88/17 K/BB ratio over 93 1/3 innings. Up next, a home start against the Padres as he tries to get back into the win column.

Madison Bumgarner pitched eight innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Bumgarner gave up five runs and won last time out, so he can't really complain about this one. It's just his third loss of the year and first that's come in a quality start.
Jun 13 - 2:01 AM

Madison Bumgarner yielded five earned runs over eight innings Saturday in a win over the Phillies.

Bumgarner was pitching pretty well until the bottom of the fourth inning, when Jeff Francoeur launched a grand slam. Andres Blanco then cranked a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. Bumgarner struck out 11 and walked none to finish with a very odd pitching line. He'll try to do a better job of run prevention next week against the Diamondbacks.
Jun 6 - 6:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed three runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings during Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Bumgarner struck out six and walked just one. The big blow against the ace came in the form of a two-run homer by Juan Uribe in the seventh inning. The homer made the score 3-2 in a game that the Braves would ultimately win 7-5. Despite the rough moment here and there, Bumgarner's been moving steadily along through the season and currently holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 61/13 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings. He'll try to continue his good run of pitching when he faces the Phillies next Saturday afternoon.
May 31 - 7:22 PM

Madison Bumgarner held the Brewers to three runs over six innings in a win on Tuesday.

Bumgarner allowed just four hits and two walks, but a couple big hits did most of the damage against the southpaw. He was still good enough to get the win, improving to 6-2 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. Bumgarner will look to stay on a roll Sunday against the Braves.
May 27 - 12:18 AM

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.
