San Francisco Giants
Hanigan recorded the Reds' only hit off Bumgarner.
The West Coast never seems to be nice when the Redlegs visit, and Thursday evening turned into a very unfriendly welcome. The Reds (41-34) and Giants (44-33) met up as Cincinnati began an 11-game road trip on the left coast. San Francisco won 5-0. Johnny Cueto (L 9-4, 2.26) struggled with command a bit, but still ended up with a quality start. The problem is that he was overshadowed by Madison Bumgarner (W 10-4, 2.85) who threw a complete-game shutout as it was all the Reds could do to even manage one hit.
Here’s the good, the bad, and the notables:
-While he took the loss Cueto did pitch six good innings, allowing three total runs, two of them earned with three strikeouts, though he did walk four. Any other day (like one where the Reds’ offense showed up) this would have been good enough.
-Ryan Hanigan’s single in the sixth inning foiled the no-hit bid by Bumgarner, but it turned out to be ...
BEST OF MAXIM
It’s rather surprising, but coming into tonight, Madison Bumgarner had never thrown a complete game. 67 starts, most of them good, and yet none of ‘em lasted nine innings. He had pitched into the ninth inning on a couple occasions, but never a complete game. In any event, his first career complete game finally came tonight, and he was really as good as ever. Miguel “how is...
Cincinnati kicked off its longest road trip of the season with a thud, managing only three baserunners against Giants starter Madison Bumgarner.
Then again, no one's been having much luck offensively against San Francisco these days.
Ryan Hanigan's leadoff single in the sixth inning was the only hit by the Reds in a 5-0 loss to the Giants on Thursday night, San Francisco...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Madison Bumgarner took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and finished with a one-hitter and the San Francisco Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 Thursday night.

If you look close, you may be able to find some help on the waiver wire. As the All-Star Break approaches, usually the most attractive names on the waiver wire are top prospects who get called up. However, there are some players available in many leagues who are putting up respectable numbers. Beware, these aren't stars, but guys that can fill in if you have a hole due to injuries...
Tonight’s game was so masterful, I’m almost at a loss for words to describe it. Madison Bumgarner was the best I’ve ever seen him, shutting down a good lineup like they were the Rangers on Halloween. He pitched in, out, up, down, and made one simple mistake of not intentionally walking Ryan Hanigan.
But man, that slider. It deserves a postgame wrap of its own. Bumgarner...
The Cincinnati Reds' Johnny Cueto and San Francisco Giants' Madison Bumgarner both have a chance to go unbeaten in the month of June.
While Cueto has experienced great success against the Giants, the same can't be said for Bumgarner versus the Reds.
With Cueto looking to win a career-best fifth straight start and Bumgarner seeking a fifth consecutive winning decision...
I stayed up until 1 a.m., but then turned it off after the 8th and missed all the excitement. Oh wait, there was no excitement. The Reds were shut-out and 1-hit. Final score: Reds 0, Giants 5.
Johnny Cueto took the mound for the Reds, but he got touched early and his team never recovered. In 6.0 innings pitched he allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and 4 walks. I’m not sure what...
The San Francisco Giants pitching is running smooth like a well oiled machine. Madison Bumgarner tossed a 1 hit shutout to an outstanding Reds offense. The G-men haven’t allowed a run since Sunday (36 scoreless innings) in Oakland. That’s the longest streak in franchise history since 1948. Bumgarner is also the first Giants pitcher to hit double digits (10) in the win column...
Madison Bumgarner is quick to remind Brandon Belt who hit the first home run between them this year.
Yes, the pitcher won that one.
And it is Bumgarner taking the credit for getting Belt back on track, too.
All but gone are those constant ''Baby Giraffe'' references to Belt and his long neck that he dealt with all of last season as a rookie, when someone even sent...
The Giants set a new San Francisco-era record with Madison Bumgarner’s one-hit shutout of the Cincinatti Reds: they have gone 36 straight innings without giving up a run.
The streak snaps the previous record of 35 scoreless innings pitched, set by the 1960 squad, from May 10-14 and is the longest such streak since the Giants rotation pitched 31 scoreless from September...
The Giants threw their fourth straight shutout last night, beating the Reds 5-0 behind a complete game one-hitter from Madison Bumgarner. Combined with three straight shutouts against the Dodgers earlier this week, the Giants are just on an unreal roll right now. Their bullpen has gotten some time off as well, throwing a total of just six innings over the past four games. And with...
