Bumgarner's 50th win comes pretty quickly

LOS ANGELES -- Madison Bumgarner became the fourth-youngest pitcher in Giants franchise history to reach the 50-win plateau, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Bumgarner reached the milestone Saturday by striking out 10 in 6 1/3 innings and earning the decision in the Giants' 7-2 triumph over the Dodgers. He was 24 years and 247 days old.

That's wasn't quite as young as Mike McCormick was (22 years, 303 days) in 1961 when he became the quickest Giant to record 50 victories. Others between McCormick and Bumgarner were Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson (22 years, 331 days in 1903), Doc Crandall (23 years, 363 days in 1912) and Hal Schumacher (24 years, 156 days in 1935).
