Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

26 Comments

The defending World Series champs are toast.

Madison Bumgarner threw eight scoreless innings, allowing only four hits and striking out seven, but the Giants managed no runs and fell to the Cubs 1-0 on Saturday night at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.

Nate Schierholtz, the former Giants outfielder, played the hero for Chicago with his game-winning solo shot off Sergio Romo in the top of the ninth.

The Giants are now 46-57 on the season and nine games back of the Dodgers — who defeated the Reds on Saturday — in the National League West standings. In any other division, they’d be buried even deeper.
