Madison Bumgarner gave up 10 hits and four runs over 6 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks didn't have many issues hitting Bumgarner, but he was able to control the damage enough to earn his 10th win. That was largely due to the grand slam Bumgarner hit in the sixth inning to help his own cause. The break comes at a good time for the lefty, who's allowed 19 runs in his last four starts. Bumgarner is more talented than his recent starts would indicate, and he should improve upon his 3.47 ERA in the second half.
