Is Giants’ Bumgarner tiring? Madison Bumgarner someday might confess he is tiring. Even great pitchers look mortal at times, and for the last three starts Bumgarner has. Connect the dots? Bumgarner's 2.49 ERA, 207 strikeouts and 1.04 WHIP position him squarely in the Cy Young conversation. A league-leading 187 2/3 innings could sway voters, too. The fastball velocity is steady, around 91 mph, but his command has not been the best. Bumgarner allowed three runs in seven innings, his best of the last three starts. Two scored on a Freddie Freeman homer, the third after Denard Span...

Given how close the Giants are to first place in the National League West, it is hard to conceive how they could reach the final week of August without winning a second-half series at home. In Sunday's decisive game, they clinched the series with an exclamation point, battering the Braves 12-4. The Giants became the fourth team in the past 103 years with four homers and four triples in a game, the first since the 1998 Yankees. The Giants hit three of the homers against a favorite target, rookie right-hander Aaron Blair. Joe Panik had his first career two-homer game and established a...
