Giants manager Bruce Bochy has named Madison Bumgarner his World Series Game 2 starter.

Bumgarner gets the call over Tim Lincecum, who will be used out of the bullpen. "He's better served at this point helping us out of the bullpen," Bochy said of Lincecum. "He gives us another weapon there. He's resilient." Bumgarner thinks he's fixed a mechanical flaw and will be better set up for success against the Tigers. He posted an 11.25 ERA over his first two postseason outings. The Giants will stay on turn with Ryan Vogelsong in Game 3 and Matt Cain in Game 4.
