PHOENIX – Madison Bumgner played seven century innings, Asrrúbal Cabrera hit four hits, including a three-run homer, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Miami Marlins 11–3 on Tuesday night.
The 31-year-old Bumgner (4-2) has begun to envision the Diamondbacks when he named the five-time All-Star five years ahead of the 2020 season for $ 85 million.
“He’s on an incredible run,” Arizona manager Tori Lovullo said. “And he deserves it.”
Against the Marlins, Bumner was in complete control, giving only four hits that all came in separate innings. He needed just 84 pitches through his outing and even added a sacrifice fly to the plate for his first RBI of the season.
At the finale of the doubleheader against Atlanta on April 25, Bumgarner played seven hitless innings for a full game, which does not count as a no-hitter and is in the midst of a great five-game stretch that earned only three. Runs are included. 30 innings.
“I have a lot of conviction in my pitches,” said Bumgarner.
There is a welcome change in the face about Madbum after a terrible 2020. The left-hander shouted slogans through his worst season, 1-4 with a 6.48 ERA. Even more worrying is that his fastball rarely has a 90 mph break and it is surprising that it was a huge mistake if the Diamondbacks offered him a big contract.
Bumgarner said he changed some things to Washington five years ago, but didn’t want to talk about him because he “didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus.” He said that he went back to a familiar approach that helps with his results.
These days, it appears that he has a lot left in the tank. His fastball regularly ran in the 92–93 mph range against the Marlins and he faced a season nine.
“I think there is confidence in throwing the ball to all four corners, four quadrants,” Bumner said. “That’s what I try to do and then expand it.”
The Diamondbacks broke open the game in the fifth when they sent 11 batters to the plate, scoring five runs and taking a 6–0 lead. This was followed by starter Pablo Lopez (0-3), who gave up six earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.
“He was on a very good roll and then (Arizona) did a good job of forcing him into the strike zone,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “Got some good pitches to hit, not chased.”
Bumgner missed a three-run homer, which proceeded to dispose of a sacrificial fly on a ball that reached the left-field warning track. The big shock came when David Peralta scored a two-run double to right. Pavin Smith and Eduardo Escobar also had RBI singles.
Nick Ahmed hit a solo homer into the left field bullpen and gave the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead in the second. The shortstop has slowly fared better after starting the season in a 3-for-41 (.073) slump. Homer pushed his average above .200 for the first time in nearly a month.
The Marlins defeated reliever Kevin Jinkel by three runs, cutting Arizona’s lead in the eighth. Jesúz Aguilar hit a two-run homer during the rally when Brian Anderson hit Chris Devenski.
Arizona piled five more in the ninth, including Cabrera’s three-run homer, and finished with 15 hits.
Marlins: C Jorge Alfaro (hamstring) and INF Jazz Chisholm (hamstring) are both starting a rehab assignment with the team’s Triple-A team in Jacksonville, Florida. … RHP Alliser Hernández (swollen biceps) threw a bullpen. Mattingly said Hernández would need some rehab before returning.
Diamondbacks: Off Kettle Mart (hamstring) came to Chase Field and went through a workout including batting practice, fielding practice and running practice. Marte said he feels close to 100% and can play in games within a week. Lovullo did not commit to a timetable, but Marte said “fantastic”. RHP Taylor Vidner (groin) threw a bullpen on Monday and Lovullo said Vidner was feeling good. The manager said Weiner played a sim game on Thursday at around 50. -55 pitches … 1B Christian Walker (skewed) left the game late after the same injury that put him on the injured list earlier this year.

The four-game series continues on Wednesday when Arizona sends RHP Zac Gallon (1-1, 3.04 ERA) to the mound. The Marlins had not decided on their starter and would likely go with several pitcher combo attempts.
