Bumgarner (5-6) went seven innings to pick up the win Wednesday over Texas, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk while fanning four. Bumgarner went seven innings for the first time since back on May 11, which also happened to be his last victory. The only damage he allowed came in the fourth inning on a single by Nathaniel Lowe and a sacrifice fly by Charlie Culberson. Bumgarner has made three starts since returning from a shoulder injury in mid-July, logging a 2.00 ERA with a 11:2 K:BB ratio over 18 innings. He's lined up to make his next start at home against San Francisco on Tuesday.
Bumgarner allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and struck out one in five innings Wednesday versus Pittsburgh. He did not factor in the decision. While Arizona ultimately won, Brett de Geus allowed an inherited runner from Joe Mantiply to score the tying run in the seventh inning. That denied Bumgarner a chance for his fifth win of the season despite a reasonable performance Wednesday. The 31-year-old lowered his ERA to 5.09 with a 1.20 WHIP and 69:19 K:BB across 70.2 innings. Bumgarner projects for another favorable matchup next week versus the Rangers.
Bumgarner (4-6) took the loss in Friday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Cubs, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and one walk with six strikeouts in six innings. Bumgarner allowed just five Chicago baserunners in six innings, but a key error led to a Javier Baez run in the second and a fourth-inning Anthony Rizzo homer saddled the big lefty with the tough-luck loss. The veteran hurler was most likely on a pitch count while making his first start since June. He was able to get through six frames on an efficient 79 pitches. Bumgarner will look to keep the momentum going Wednesday against Pittsburgh in rare, winnable game for Arizona.
Bumgarner (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday. Bumgarner was sidelined for a month and a half, but he'll return to the mound as the starter in Friday's game against the Cubs. He built up to 4.1 innings in his most recent rehab start, but the Diamondbacks haven't indicated whether he could be on a pitch count Friday. The southpaw posted a 5.73 ERA in 59.2 innings across 12 starts to begin the season.
Bumgarner (shoulder) will start Friday against the Cubs, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. Bumgarner has been sidelined since June 3 with left shoulder inflammation but is set to make his return coming out of the All-Star break. He threw 4.1 innings in his most recent rehab start, so he should be able to work fairly deep into the game from a workload perspective. To this point in the season, Bumgarner has maintained a 5.73 ERA and 1.26 WHIP with 62 strikeouts across 59.2 innings.
