With speculation still floating that the Giants could move the 29-year-old Bumgarner before Wednesday's trade deadline, Bumgarner improved to 6-7 on the season as the still-surging Giants defeated the Padres 7-6 in the rubber match of the three-game series.

One of those was against the Padres on July 3, when he allowed four runs off eight hits in only four innings.

Will Smith picked up his 26th save despite giving up a two-run homer to Wil Myers with two out in the ninth.

His prior start had been even more impressive, when he went toe-to-toe with rookie Mike Soroka in another scoreless battle; he allowed only three hits in six innings pitched. Franmil Reyes lifted a ball to right that just kept carrying - Yastrzemski thought he had it in deep right, then on the warning track, then at the wall.
