8/27/2014 | Bumgarner's near no-hitter doesn't surprise Giants

8/27/2014 | With precision, Bumgarner reaches new heights

"Magical" is about the best explanation for what Madison Bumgarner did during Tuesday night's one-hit shutout against the Rockies. Go back and watch it pitch by pitch. Watch the location. And the velocity. And the movement. And then watch it all over again. Watch the hitters. Watch their reaction.

Under normal circumstances, right-hander Tim Hudson might feel a lot of pressure Wednesday following up Madison Bumgarner's near-perfect game. But if Rockies left-hander Franklin Morales is anywhere near as wild as he was his last time out, Hudson won't need to be half near perfect to topple him.

Angel Pagan was next to manager Bruce Bochy in the Giants dugout Monday night when Andrew Susac hit a home run where home runs rarely go at AT&T Park: to straightaway center field.

8/26/2014 | Mistakes costly as Giants fall to Rockies

The Rockies will look to carry over Monday's momentum when their ace, Jorge De La Rosa, takes the mound for Game 2 on Tuesday. He'll be countered by left-hander Madison Bumgarner, who has been just as sharp as De La Rosa this month.

8/25/2014 | Giants to skip Lincecum, start Petit instead

Yusmeiro Petit will take over for Tim Lincecum in the Giants' rotation Thursday, manager Bruce Bochy said before Monday night's game. Bochy said the rotation would be reassessed after Petit's start, so it's unknown when or if Lincecum will return to the rotation.
