Bumgarner threw seven shutout innings and allowed just one hit with 10 strikeouts but was left with a no-decision Monday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Bumgarner allowed three runs with five strikeouts and two walks across seven innings Sunday versus Atlanta, earning his 13th win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner cruised after allowing a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but a two-run homer by Freddie Freeman in the sixth compromised his overall stat line a bit. On a positive note, the left-hander surpassed five innings pitched after lasting just five frames in each of his last two outings, and his ERA sits at an impressive 2.49 for the season. Bumgarner is firmly in the National League Cy Young race, along with fellow frontrunners Max Scherzer and Jose Fernandez, and although he ranks third among the trio in strikeouts, he leads in ERA and innings pitched. He will look to further make his case Saturday against the Cubs.

Bumgarner (12-8) allowed five runs on nine hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner has been off his game in his past two starts, as he has served up nine earned runs on 15 hits over 10 combined innings. He's still racking up the strikeouts with 13, but he has been bitten by a pair of home runs. Bumgarner has now allowed 20 in 27 starts, and he has a HR/9 above 1.0 for the first time since 2012. He still has a 2.44 ERA, but that's going to keep going up if he can't find a way to keep the ball in the yard.

Bumgarner improved to 12-7 despite allowing four runs over five innings against the Mets on Thursday. He gave up six hits and three walks wile striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

To be fair, all the damage came on a grand slam by Justin Ruggiano in the fourth inning, and he responded with a two-run homer of his own. However, Bumgarner was pulled after five frames with his pitch count at 89 -- a move that actually ended up letting the Mets get back in the game after the Giants had just started pulling away. The star lefty has given up four earned runs on four separate occasions over his last 10 starts, but only four total runs in the other six outings in that span -- as a result, his ERA has only risen by 0.05 during that time and is still a career-best 2.25.

Bumgarner (11-7) surrendered just three hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven shutout innings, and was the winning pitcher in Saturday night's 6-2 victory over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from running into some trouble with one out in the sixth, an inning he would ultimately, and masterfully, escape, the lefty was dominate once again, throwing 101 pitches en route to his first win since July 10. The fact the game didn't end in a shutout doesn't take away the brilliance of Bumgarner, as he now has a 2.11 ERA and 189 strikeouts in 170.2 innings pitched this season. He's scheduled to next take the mound Thursday at home against the Mets.

Bumgarner (10-7) tossed a gem Sunday, surrendering just one run on two hits while striking out seven over eight innings, but he was saddled with his seventh loss of the season after falling to the Nationals 1-0.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner was absolutely dealing against one of the National League's premier lineups, but his lone mistake -- a solo homer to Wilson Ramos -- ended up being the difference in the contest. The loss brings his post-All-Star break record to 0-3 despite having three starts of at least seven innings while giving up one or fewer runs. Despite the lack of wins, Bumgarner is still on pace for career-best marks in both ERA (2.20) and K/9 (9.95). He draws a tough matchup against Baltimore at home Saturday, but he has been virtually matchup proof all season.

Bumgarner was tagged for eight runs (four earned) on 10 hits and two walks in Tuesday's no-decision against the Phillies, striking out four.

EDGE Analysis

San Francisco's ace was spared the loss thanks to the team's offensive outburst in the middle innings, but it was still surprising to see him struggle against the second-worst offense in baseball. What looked like a terrific matchup on paper ended up turning into Bumgarner's worst performance of the season, and extended his winless streak to a season-high four games. The 27-year-old's tremendous resume has earned him the benefit of the doubt, so it's far from time to push the panic button with a marquee matchup in Washington next on his docket Sunday.
