Madison Bumgarner is a beast, and he’s not about to let you forget it.

Saturday’s match-up against the Cubs was devoid of any no-hitter attempts, even with Bumgarner and Jake Arrieta on the mound, but the Giants’ ace managed a 10-strikeout effort to keep the team in the running for division lead. He held the Cubs to five hits and two runs over six frames, while manager Bruce Bochy spun his carousel of relievers to get three scoreless innings and a 3-2 finish.

Arrieta didn’t look too shabby either, fanning seven batters in six innings and contributing an infield hit that scored Javier Baez for the Cubs’ first run of the game.

The Giants and Cubs will face off for the finale of their four-game set on Sunday at 2:20 PM EDT.
