Giants Hit 4 Homers To Back Bumgarner And Beat Braves 13-4

By MICHAEL WAGAMAN, Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joe Panik homered twice and matched his career high of four RBIs to back Madison Bumgarner, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 13-4 on Sunday to win a series for only the second time since the All-Star break.

Denard Span and Eduardo Nunez also homered, Brandon Crawford had three hits and Jarrett Parker drove in three runs for San Francisco.

The Giants took two of three from the Braves and remained two games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

Bumgarner (13-8) allowed three runs over seven uneven innings. He struck out five and walked two.

San Francisco’s four-time All-Star pitched in and out of trouble most of the day but punctuated his afternoon with an emphatic fist pump after striking out pinch-hitter Jace Peterson to end the seventh.
