LHP Madison Bumgarner picked up the win on Sunday when he allowed one run on two hits with one walk and five strikeouts over five innings as the D-Backs beat the Nationals 5-2.
This was easily one of Bumgarner's best starts in a D-Backs uniform as he limited the Nationals to just two hits over his five innings. He served up a solo home run to Trea Turner in the bottom of the third inning and walked a batter but he was flawless other than that. Mad Bum's season stats are still horrendous due to his ugly start to the year but this was a step in the right direction. He'll carry his 8.68 ERA and 1.77 WHIP into Atlanta for his next start against the Braves.
