|2013 Regular Season|
It was a much more characteristic outing for Bumgarner after he gave up nine runs in 4 2-3 innings his last time out. He remains 4-2 while his ERA improved to 2.89.
Bumgarner (4-1, 2.18 ERA) gave up just four hits and walked two, snapping a string of four starts without a victory.
Fantasy owners shouldn't be too alarmed as he still owns a 2.31 ERA and Monday was only the second time in seven outings he failed to record a quality start.
Bumgarner, who lowered his ERA to 1.55, became the first Giants pitcher to allow two or fewer runs in at least six starts since Kevin Correia had seven such outings in 2007.
Bumgarner hasn't allowed more than two runs or six hits in each of his first five starts. He's 3-0 with a 1.87 ERA.
Bumgarner (1-0) struck out six and walked none in the second straight gem at Dodger Stadium. The only hits were a pair of doubles by Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw homered and pitched a four-hit shutout in the Dodgers' 4-0 victory on opening day Monday.
