Giants’ Bumgarner won’t concede division race

SAN DIEGO — After two consecutive walk-off losses to the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Giants are eight games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West with 10 games to play.

However, left-hander Madison Bumgarner, who was denied his 19th win of the season Thursday night when the Padres rallied against the San Francisco bullpen, is not ready to concede anything.

“No matter where we’re at, we want to win games,” Bumgarner said after the Giants’ 5-4 loss. “No matter what the circumstances and the situation, we want to win games.

“It’s a crazy game we play. We’ve been through a lot this year, a lot of injuries, adversity. I feel really good about the group of guys we have. Obviously, right now, it isn’t what we wanted or what we worked for.

“At the same time, you have to realize how hard this game is. We have four games with the Dodgers next week at home.

“Right now, the only thing on my mind is the Dodgers on Tuesday night. Everything else, we’ll cross those bridges when we get there.”

Bumgarner set a career high for strikeouts at 228, which is 11 shy of the franchise record by a left-handed pitcher, set by Cy Seymour in 1898.
