San Francisco -

Madison Bumgarner struck out a season-high 11 over seven innings, Gregor Blanco entered in the fifth as a pinch hitter and drove in four runs, and the San Francisco Giants routed the Atlanta Braves 10-1 Saturday.
    
The left-handed Bumgarner baffled the Braves, getting them to chase his fastball up in the zone and bite on curveballs in the dirt. Bumgarner (4-1) gave up just four hits and walked two, snapping a string of four starts without a victory.
    
Blanco had a double and triple in setting a career high for RBIs.
    
The Braves hurt themselves defensively and lefty Paul Maholm (4-4) lasted just 4 1-3 innings, giving up six runs and eight hits.
