Neither of these teams have much to be proud of up until this point, however I have to think that Bumgarner knows he's part of the reason that the Giants are where they are in the standings right now. He has been knocked around pretty good, losing all three of his decisions and pitching to a 4.73 ERA. Though Cueto retired the final two Padres' hitters in the fourth inning with a runner in scoring position, Giants' manager Bruce Bochy lifted the right-hander and turned the rest of the contest into a bullpen game. "I feel that the ball is tighter and with my three fingers I can't feel the ball".
It's the second time this season he's been bothered by blister symptoms, but he didn't skip a turn on the first occasion.
The former Braves left-hander said that if anyone could notice a juiced ball it would be a pitcher.
Cueto escaped without a decision and has won just twice in eight starts; past year he was 13-1 at the break.
"I thought he settled in relatively nicely there, until the sixth inning", Padres manager Andy Green said. "His command wasn't quite as sharp and sure enough, after four he said, 'I just can't finish my pitches.' I had to make a change".

Posey, who entered the game with two hits in his last 19 at-bats, produced a seventh-inning, 429-foot blast off reliever Ryan Buchter for his 11th homer on the year and his first since June 22.
Cueto's night did begin on a positive note, as he struck out two batters in a scoreless bottom of the first before drilling his third hit of the season in the top of the second to drive in Giants' shortstop Brandon Crawford and give himself a 2-0 lead. Gorkys Hernandez went a flawless 4 for 4 with a double while Brandon Belt, Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Crawford each added a double of their own respectively while Joe Panik chipped in a pair of base hits for the Giants in the win. Cory Gearrin got the win to improve to 3-2 this season while Sam Dyson notched his 4th save of the year.
"I think so, probably", Cueto said.
When they started the second half on Friday night in San Diego, they went down and starter Johnny Cueto came out. He struck out four and walked two. It didn't take away from the strong start, though, as Richard gave up only a solo homer over his six innings of work. Carlos Asuaje and Cory Spangenberg each added a double while Manuel Margot and Wil Myers each added base hits as well in the loss for San Diego. "It's really hard when you have the lead going and you're expected to come away on top and I wasn't able to do that". Posey's hit fell just in front of a diving Blash in right field to bring around Brandon Belt after he reached on a two-out single. To replace them, OF Blash and RHP Jose Valdez were recalled from Triple-A El Paso. San Diego took the lead on Austin Hedges' RBI single in the fourth.
