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."

Bumgarner (9-4) gave up seven hits and four earned runs in 6.1 innings during Thursday's 12-6 victory over the A's. He struck out four and also notched a double in four at-bats.

EDGE Analysis

The offensively proficient ace may not have been at his best on the mound, but did notch another milestone with the bat when he became the first opposing pitcher to log an extra-base hit in an AL park since 1997. He broke a rare two-start losing streak as well, although he gave up at least one homer for the fifth straight outing. While he's seen his ERA rise for two consecutive starts, Bumgarner is still sporting a stellar 2.20 figure in that category, and hasn't dropped three consecutive decisions in almost two full years. He'll try to get back to his customary level of dominance next Tuesday versus the Rockies.

Bumgarner (8-4) lost his second straight start, as he allowed three runs on five hits over 6.1 innings against the Phillies on Saturday. He also struck out seven and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

He has two straight quality starts and combined to strike out 15 in those outings, but he has lost two decisions in a row due to a sleeping Giants offense. On Saturday, Bumgarner allowed a two-run homer to Cameron Rupp with a one-run lead in the seventh, which cost him the game. Bumgarner now has a 1.99 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 122 strikeouts in 108.1 innings. He will look to get back on track against the Athletics in his next start Thursday.

Bumgarner (8-3) took the tough-luck loss despite allowing just one run on five hits with two walks and eight strikeouts in eight innings Monday in Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Counterpart Jeff Locke and the Pirates bullpen combined to shut out the Giants, so a solo homer by light-hitting backup catcher Erik Kratz was all it took to doom Bumgarner. The 2014 World Series MVP is rolling with two or less earned runs allowed in each of his last 12 starts, and Saturday's home date with the Phillies provides a tremendous opportunity to keep that streak going in his next outing.

Bumgarner (8-2) allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight over eight innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner was in 2-2 game in the sixth inning before the Giants scratched out a run on a wild pitch in the seventh inning to lead the righty to his eighth victory of the season. This was the first time in seven starts that he's allowed more than one run, and his ERA is a stellar 1.91. He'll make his next start Monday at the Pirates.

Bumgarner put together a solid six innings Wednesday against the Red Sox, but left with his second no-decision in three starts. He allowed one run on four hits while walking one and striking out five.

EDGE Analysis

His lone mistake came in the fourth inning when he left a two-out, 3-1 pitch up in the zone that Chris Young hammered. The good news for the Giants ace is that he didn't take the loss, meaning Bumgarner's six-game winning streak is still going. The southpaw admitted he wasn't at his best in this one, yet managed to lower his ERA to a season-best 1.88.

Bumgarner (7-2) tossed 7.2 scoreless innings and hit a two-run dinger in Thursday's win against the Braves. He allowed four hits and two walks while tying his season-high of 11 strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The rest of the team could have caught a morning flight back to San Francisco, because Bumgarner took care of this matinee on his own. He broke a scoreless tie with his home run in the fifth inning while mystifying hitters all day. Bumgarner induced an astronomical 21 swinging strikes while fanning every player in the Braves starting lineup.
