Thursday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (12-6, 3.03 ERA)
The Giants lefty has helped keep the club afloat during Tim Lincecum’s sub-par season and while he’s recorded just one win in his last three starts, Bumgarner has been sublime in that span. He’s allowed just five earned runs in his last 19 innings and has totaled 25 strikeouts in that stretch.
Jordan Zimmermann, Washington Nationals (8-6, 2.45 ERA)
The Nationals are fighting for the top spot in the bigs, thanks in part to the efforts of Zimmermann. The right-hander is undefeated in his previous eight starts, going 5-0 and has not allowed more than one run in that span before surrendering four earned runs in a no-decision versus Miami in his most recent outings.
It’s incredible to see how far Jimenez has fallen. The righty is winless in his last five starts with a 0-4 record in that span. He was knocked around for six earned runs on seven hits over 5 1-3 innings versus the Tigers in his most recent appearance.
Chris Volstad, Chicago Cubs (0-8, 7.22 ERA)
Volstad hasn’t won a game in 21 starts and has swallowed five straight “L’s” spread out over the course of the season. The Cubs did like what they saw from the righty in his most recent defeat, throwing seven solid innings in which he allowed just two earned runs on six hits, including one home run.
