Wednesday afternoon, the San Francisco Giants will send Madison Bumgarner (18 - 9, 2.91 ERA) to the hill as they square off against the Arizona Diamondbacks and Randall Delgado (3 - 4, 5.48 ERA). Bumgarner will make his 32nd start as Delgado makes his 5th start and 43 rd appearance.
Madison Bumgarner won his 5th straight game his last time out. Bumgarner was stellar as he held the opposition scoreless over 7 innings, surrendering just 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 9. Bumgarner hasn't lost a game since early August and has compiled a 7 -2 record in his last 10 outings. Last season, he posted a record of 13 - 9 with a 2.77 ERA in 31 starts.
In 2013, Bumgarner was 1 - 1 with a 1.39 ERA in 5 starts against Arizona. This season, he is 2 - 0 against the Diamondbacks in 3 starts.
Randall Delgado wasn't sharp in his last start and it led to a loss for the young righty. Delgado gave up 3 runs and 7 hits through 4 innings while walking 2 and striking out 3. He has had better performances than that but he has had some terrible outings too. He began the year in the starting rotation but after 2 rough starts, he was moved to the bullpen. Delgado is 1 - 2 in his 4 starts this season. Last season, he was 5 -7 with a 4.26 ERA in 19 starts and a relief appearance.
In 2013, Delgado was 1 - 1 with a 0.71 ERA in 2 starts against the Giants. He is 0 - 1 in 5 appearances against the Giants this season including the loss in his last start.
