Bumgarner (4-5) took the loss Saturday, coughing up six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks over six innings while striking out six as the Giants fell 7-1 to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Cincinnati's offense strafed the southpaw, as five of the eight hits off Bumgarner went for extra bases, including solo homers by Jose Peraza and Dilson Herrera. Bumgarner will try to shake off his worst start of the season when he next takes the mound Thursday on the road against the Mets.

Bumgarner gave up two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings Monday. He did not factor in the decision in a comeback win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Clayton Kershaw posted the stronger line in another classic pitcher's duel between the two southpaws, but a ninth-inning rally got Bumgarner off the hook for a tough-luck loss. The 29-year-old only recorded seven swinging strikes, and his 9.3 swinging strike percentage (10.5 career average) is the likely contributor to his career-worst 2.1 K/BB ratio. That said, Bumgarner has still been able to produce a strong 2.71 ERA in 13 starts since returning from a serious hand injury, which is a testament to his ability to keep hitters off balance despite not having his best strikeout stuff.

Bumgarner did not factor in the decision in Tuesday's loss to the Astros despite allowing five hits over seven scoreless innings. He had seven strikeouts and three walks.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants offense mustered only four hits against Dallas Keuchel and the Astros' bullpen, and Ray Black relieved Bumgarner for the eighth inning only to give up a decisive two-run home run to Tyler White. Bumgarner has a 2.69 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 73.2 innings after missing the first two months of the season, and next lines up to face the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday.

Bumgarner (3-4) took the loss despite a strong start against the Brewers on Friday that saw him give up three runs (two earned) on six hits over eight innings, striking out five and walking one in the Giants' 3-1 defeat.

EDGE Analysis

It was a hard-luck loss for the left-hander, who was outdueled by Chase Anderson and dealt his fourth defeat since his return from the disabled list. It was a solid bounce-back after he lasted just four innings against the Athletics in his last start, and Bumgarner will look to keep it going in his next outing, which will pit him against the Diamondbacks on August 2.

Bumgarner (3-3) picked up the win over the Athletics on Friday, giving up one earned run on three hits over six innings, striking out five and walking three in the Giant's 7-1 victory.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander was sharp in his final start before the All-Star break, bagging his second straight victory by quieting an Oakland lineup that has been hot recently. He missed most of the first half of the season due to injury, but Bumgarner has been performing pretty much like his normal self since he returned to action, as he's sporting a 2.90 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP to go along with 41 strikeouts in 49.2 innings.

Bumgarner (2-3) surrendered four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings Sunday. He was able to record the win in a 13-8 victory over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner struggled with his command, only throwing 61 of his 101 pitches for strikes. Luckily for his fantasy owners, the Giants provided enough offensive thump to give the southpaw his second victory through seven starts. The 28-year-old owns a 3.09 ERA and 1.19 WHIP since returning from a serious hand injury last month, but a career-worst 2.6 K/BB ratio has resulted in a pedestrian 3.77 FIP. Bumgarner has shown flashes of brilliance outside of a couple of shaky starts, so it may be just a matter of time before he returns to his consistent, ace-like form.

Bumgarner (1-3) took the loss after giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits over six innings Monday. He walked three and struck out five in a 5-2 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner took the hard-luck loss in this one, but all three of the runs on his ledger were rather fluky as well. He started the seventh inning by allowing three weak hits (a single, a bloop single and an infield single), which resulted in the southpaw being removed from the game. Reyes Moronta proceeded to allow all three of Bumgarner's baserunners to come around to score, resulting in a pitching line that could have been far better than it looked on paper. The 28-year-old was starting to look like his former dominant self over his previous two starts (15 IP, 0 ER, 4 BB, 16 K), and Monday's outing certainly wasn't a step back, especially considering that this game was played at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Bumgarner will look to keep things rolling in a home start against the Cardinals on Saturday.

Bumgarner tossed seven shutout innings and allowed just two hits and two walks with eight strikeouts but still left with just a no-decision Wednesday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner was dealing, as he induced 12 swinging strikes in 101 pitches and allowed runners to reach scoring position only once, in the fifth inning. He has now thrown 15 scoreless innings with 16 strikeouts and four walks in his past two starts and looks like he has found his ace form after a shaky first few starts following his return from the disabled list June 5. Bumgarner will take a 2.51 ERA into his sixth start of the year Monday at Coors Field against the Rockies.

Bumgarner allowed four runs on six hits and one walk across 5.1 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Marlins. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Bumgarner allowed two runs on three hits in the fourth inning, but the offense came back and gave him a lead going into the sixth. He faltered in the frame, however, allowing two more runs on three hits and a walk before his removal. Bumgarner worked up to 91 pitches in his second start of the season, but he threw just 55 percent for strikes and clearly has some rust left to shake off. He'll have the opportunity to do just that in his next scheduled start this weekend against the Dodgers.

Bumgarner (0-1) allowed two runs on eight hits in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, striking out three and walking none in six innings.

EDGE Analysis

In his first start off the disabled list Bumgarner threw a quality start on 82 pitches (58 for strikes), but was outmatched by Arizona starter Patrick Corbin. Bumgarner allowed three extra-base hits (all doubles), and was generally effective in pitching around eight total hits allowed. The 28-year-old made only two rehab starts before jumping back on the rotation (which might explain the somewhat early departure), but he can be expected to stretch it out a bit more in his next start against the Marlins in Miami.
