Bumgarner's 4th 1-hitter

What a way to go into the All-Star break with Bumgarner pitching on short rest and tossing a 1-hitter against the Snakes. It's the 4th of his seven-season career. We are fortunate to have him in the Orange and Black.

Here is the top of the mlb story

SAN FRANCISCO -- Just putting the ball in played seemed like a near-impossible task for the D-backs on Sunday, as San Francisco ace Madison Bumgarner struck out 14 batters and pitched a one-hit complete game in a 4-0 Giants win at AT&T Park.
Bumgarner took his latest no-hitter attempt into the eighth inning. But D-backs third baseman Jake Lamb ended the pursuit with a one-out single. Bumgarner walked Rickie Weeks Jr. to open the ninth, but after Nick Ahmed popped out, Bumgarner, whose 14 K's tied his career best, induced a double play to give the Giants their Majors-best 57th victory heading into the All-Star break.
"When you get through seven and you go up there and got six more outs to go, you feel like you got a pretty good chance," said Bumgarner, who has now recorded four one-hitters in his career. "It hasn't worked out for me, I'll take the complete game shutout any time."
