SAN FRANCISCO -- Madison Bumgarner gave up back-to-back solo home runs in the second inning, and with Cliff Lee on the mound, that was all the Phillies needed.
Bumgarner had one of his best starts of the season, following up the consecutive homers with a lights-out performance the rest of the way, but the Giants couldn't get anything going against Lee, falling to Philadelphia, 3-0, on Thursday night at AT&T Park.
