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

SF Giants back alone in first place after third straight win

By Henry Schulman Miami – Maybe the Giants were rejuvenated by the time off. Maybe they ran into a team heading south. Maybe it’s a little of both. There are no maybes about this: With Saturday night’s 5-3 victory against the Marlins, the Giants have their first three-game winning streak in five weeks and returned to first place by themselves for the first time since July 2. They have come to this cavernous pitchers’ park and scored 14 runs in two games, while Madison Bumgarner and Tim Hudson have provided shutdown work from the mound. Hudson earned his 100th career road win and ended...

No Marco Scutaro in SF Giants’ second-half opener

This can’t be a good sign. Marco Scutaro has been active for four games, counting tonight. He started one, on Saturday. He did not start the first-half finale against the Diamondbacks on Sunday and is not starting in Miami tonight.

Giants’ All-Star update

Some quick pregame Giants stuff: Tim Hudson said he was told he’s the long reliever or emergency guy in extra innings. This is his normal pitching day, so he said he could throw 100 pitches. Just what Bruce Bochy loves to hear. Hudson is slated to start Saturday in the second game after the break. Madison Bumgarner isn’t appearing in the game because he started Sunday, meaning Hunter Pence could be the only Giants All-Star in the box score. ***** Hudson is a four-time All-Star covering a 15-year span. Times have changed from his first to his latest. “The first one,” said Hudson,...

Giants' pitcher Madison Bumgarner hopes luck is about to change

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 7/14

Hey dump, don't make it sad, take a sad link and make it better Happy Bastille Day! I feel comfortable saying that because it's the summer and there are no major league baseball games, so we might as well all be French commies. Seriously? Two Grand Slams in 1 Year?Brandon Belt may have been out of the lineup yesterday, but he'll never leave our hearts. When he took to the keyboard yesterday, he was miffed that he's only hit two grand slams in his life, and Madison Bumgarner has hit two just this year. I know how he feels. I want to be as good at blowing snotrockets as Bumgarner, but the...

Giants | Madison Bumgarner heads to break in slump

McCovey Chronicles Jul 13, 2014

Giants have a grand time as they win their 3rd series in a month.

Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner both hit grand slams, the relievers look like the pitchers of yore, and the Giants enter the break only one game back of first place despite losing 22 of their last 32 games. Just as the Giants' season can be split into three parts, so too can a recap of this game: - CHAPTER ONE - "Madison Bumgarner has a higher slugging percentage than Giancarlo Stanton." It's true. Madison Bumgarner has a higher slugging percentage than Giancarlo Stanton. Madison Bumgarner is slugging .550. Giancarlo Stanton is slugging .538. — Alex Pavlovic (@AlexPavlovic) July...
