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.

Bumgarner (10-6) suffered a tough loss, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over eight frames against the Reds. He also struck out nine and walked none.

EDGE Analysis

It's the second time since June 20 that Bumgarner lost a game where he only allowed one earned run. Unfortunately, he hasn't won since the All-Star break, but his other numbers aren't terrible. Bumgarner has a 3.00 ERA with 24 strikeouts in his last 21 innings over three starts. His next outing will be Tuesday versus the Phillies.

Bumgarner held the Yankees to two runs over seven innings while walking three and striking out six Sunday. He did not factor into the eventual 3-2 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Most fantasy owners would be pleased with the final line score Bumgarner provided Friday, but it did not come easy for the dominant lefty. He allowed seven baserunners over the first two innings and saw his pitch count elevate to a level that pointed towards a short outing. Bumgarner - as he usually does - bounced back in the face of adversity and shut the Yankees down over the next five innings, keeping his offense within striking distance. Things get easier for him next time out when the Giants take on the Reds on Wednesday.

Bumgarner suffered the loss Friday at San Diego, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk across six innings. He struck out nine.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner avoided getting himself in serious trouble, but he was touched up for a run in four different innings, primarily via the extra-base hit. Bumgarner entered Friday's start on the back of a 15-inning scoreless streak and still owns an impressive ERA of just 2.12, so he should be expected to bounce back in his next start Friday at Yankee Stadium.

Bumgarner mowed down 14 D-backs in a complete-game, one-hit shutout on Sunday in a 4-0 victory. He also walked a batter.

EDGE Analysis

The dominant lefty mystified and overpowered the D-backs all night long, retiring 25 of the 28 batters he faced on the way to his third complete game of the season. The 14 strikeouts matched his career high, and he recorded two whiffs apiece on six of Arizona's nine hitters, including Paul Goldschmidt. The Giants ace took a no-hitter into the eighth inning for the third time in his career, but like the prior two occasions, was unable sustain it. Jake Lamb, who'd also reached earlier in the game on an error by outfielder Gregor Blanco, broke up the no-no with a one-out single, but Bumgarner was otherwise impossible to break through against. He'll head to the All-Star game with a sparkling 1.94 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 146:32 K:BB over 129.2 innings.

Bumgarner allowed just four hits and two walks with six strikeouts over six shutout innings but took a no-decision Tuesday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner has allowed just 12 runs over his past eight starts with a 61:13 K:BB, and this marks the fifth time in that stretch he has thrown at least six innings and allowed one run or fewer. But Bumgarner has notched just three wins despite this amazing run, as he has been stuck with a pair of losses and now three no-decisions. There's not much else to say to a run like this but "hang with 'em."
