72-82

The Giants guaranteed themselves a losing season tonight with a discouraging 5-3 to the Cards as Madison Bumgarner allowed 3 runs and the Marc Melancon-Tony Watson tandem gagged away the game in the 8th.

Here's the top of MLB's story --

ST. LOUIS -- It's been a hot-and-cold season for southpaw Madison Bumgarner and the Giants. He opened September giving up a flurry of runs in a pair of starts, and the runs have been sparse for an offense that saw first baseman Brandon Belt undergo season-ending knee surgery Friday morning prior to the Giants' 5-3 loss that evening to the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
With a team that has been eliminated from the postseason and continues to struggle, manager Bruce Bochy was still pleased with the Giants' performance. Bumgarner didn't deliver an ace performance, but he kept the Giants within striking distance, allowing three runs in six innings off eight hits. What Bochy wasn't happy about, however, was the Giants' misfortune.
