Bumgarner pitches Giants past Padres for fourth straight win

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Madison Bumgarner carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning on the way to winning back-to-back starts for the first time this season, leading the San Francisco Giants past the San Diego Padres 2-0 on Monday night for their fourth straight win.

Bumgarner (3-1) outdueled Tyson Ross (1-3), striking out six and walking one as each starter threw 107 pitches. Bumgarner left to a standing ovation in the top of the eighth and tipped his cap as he gave way to Sergio Romo.

The reigning World Series MVP didn't allow a hit until Justin Upton's leadoff single in the seventh just got past reaching shortstop Brandon Crawford. In consecutive starts, Bumgarner has beaten Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers and now Ross.

The left-hander, who hit a pair of grand slams last year, also ended an 0-for-11 start at the plate with a fourth-inning single.
