Madison Bumgarner isn't easily impressed in pregame warmups.
Thursday night was different.
"I don't put a lot of stock into the bullpen before the game, but today I could tell that the stuff was picking up a little," the 2014 World Series MVP said.
Bumgarner pitched eight innings of three-hit ball for his first win this season, Mark Melancon earned his first save in a year and the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 3-0.
"It was the Madison we know," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
San Francisco won for the fourth time in five games and sent the last-place Padres to their fifth straight loss.
