Bumgarner, Giants blank Mets, 7-0

NEW YORK (AP) - Madison Bumgarner pitched a two-hitter and Hunter Pence homered twice to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 9-0 win over the New York Mets on Sunday.

Bumgarner (13-8) beat the Mets again, running his record to 3-0 in five games against them and giving the Giants their third win in 10 games. Brandon Belt and Buster Posey also went deep for the Giants.

The left-hander struck out 10 and walked one in his second career shutout (the other was a one-hitter in 2012 against the Reds), wrapping up Sunday's gem with a punch out of pinch-hitter Travis d'Arnaud to wrap up the game in a tidy 94 pitches.

Mets starter Bartolo Colon (10-9) was going for win No. 200, but the Giants got to him with a couple of home runs that barely cleared the wall before he started to look eminently hittable in the three-run fifth inning. Pence's two-run shot in the third was a line drive that went off the railing above the moved-in fence in left field. Brandon Belt hit a towering fly to right that tucked in just over the fence and inside the pole there for a 3-0 lead.

Bumgarner singled and scored his first of two runs on Pence's double in the fifth, and Posey drove him in before Pablo Sandoval's single ended Colon's afternoon. The easygoing 41-year-old right-hander tossed the ball gently in the air on the mound as he waited for Collins to remove him.

Colon allowed six runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings as he tried for his 200th career win.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Giants: OF Angel Pagan (back) was set to continue his rehab assignment with a move to Triple-A Fresno, where the organization hopes to get him in games Monday and Tuesday.

UP NEXT

Giants: Right-hander Tim Hudson (8-8) has a 1.77 ERA in his three starts since the All-Star break. He had a no-decision against the Mets earlier this season in San Francisco in a game the Giants won 5-4 on June 7.

Mets: Righty Dillon Gee (4-4) makes his fifth career start against the Giants, against whom he has a 6.75 ERA and 0-1 record.

BARTOLO AT THE BAT

Fans could be heard groaning in disappointment for all three of Colon's swing-and-misses during his third-inning at bat, but applauded his effort as he returned to the dugout.

BACK IN BASH

The Giants entered Sunday's game with two home runs in their past 10 games, but added four against New York pitching. Pence hit Nos. 14 and 15 this season, while Posey's was his 13th and Belt hit his 11th.
