    • Bumgarner allowed five runs on four hits, including three homers in a no-decision over the Padres on Saturday. He also struck out five and walked one. It was the first time all season Bumgarner yielded three homers in one outing. The Giants ace has now tossed up 26 home runs this season. San Francisco is 2-2 in Bumgarner's last four starts, and he hasn't won a game since Sept. 3. He is 14-9 with a 2.71 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 246 strikeouts in 219.1 innings this season. His final regular season start will be Friday against the Dodgers.

    • Bumgarner threw seven shutout innings and allowed just one hit with 10 strikeouts but was left with a no-decision Monday against the Dodgers. Bumgarner must be furious at the lack of support from his teammates, as he did everything he could to give the Giants a chance to win Monday night. This marks the sixth time he has reached double-digit strikeouts this year. Monday's performance brings him to 241 strikeouts for the season, enough for a career high and a brilliant 10.2 K/9.

    • Bumgarner took the loss in the series finale against the Padres. He allowed three runs on seven hits, struck out five and walked two over 6.2 innings, as San Diego completed the sweep. That's now six starts where Bumgarner posted a quality start but took the loss. There are also six other quality starts where he received a no-decision. That explains why he is only 14-9 with a 2.66 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 231 strikeouts in 206.1 innings. Bumgarner will look to turnaround his fortune in his next start Monday against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

    • Bumgarner allowed four runs on six hits, struck out nine and walked one over six innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Friday. He yielded just over a base runner per frame, but a pair of two-run homers prevent Bumgarner from throwing his third straight quality start. This was the fourth time since Aug. 2 that the left-hander has allowed at least four runs in a game. Overall, he is 14-8 with a 2.61 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 226 strikeouts in 199.2 innings. His next start will be Wednesday against San Diego.

    • Bumgarner (14-8) was in vintage form in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Cubs, recording 10 strikeouts while allowing two earned runs on five hits over six innings. He's undeniably had some hiccups this season, but Saturday was a performance befitting the caliber of pitcher that Bumgarner is. He recorded 14 swinging strikes and first-pitch strikes on 19 of the 25 batters he faced. The only runs he gave up were rather innocuous, coming on a Jake Arrieta infield single and Javier Baez foul sacrifice fly. It was the southpaw's first double-digit strikeout performance since July 10 versus the D-backs, as well as his second straight quality start. He'll look to keep it going when he faces Arizona on Friday night.
