Bumgarner throws eight scoreless innings as Giants beat Padres, 3-0

Johnny Cueto jogged on the AT&T Park field a few hours before first pitch Thursday preparing for a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend. Some 90 miles away, Jeff Samardzija took the mound in Sacramento and pitched four innings against minor-league hitters. As the Giants’ battered rotation inches closer to being whole, perhaps no development was more encouraging Thursday night than the outing of Madison Bumgarner, who threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over the Padres in just his fourth start since his own return.
