Opposing Syndergaard will be old hat for Bumgarner, who has faced Los Angeles' Clayton Kershaw twice and Arizona's Zack Greinke once. Bumgarner, the reigning Silver Slugger Award winner, might relish confronting Syndergaard as a hitter.

As much as anything, Syndergaard will work Sunday to keep the running game in check. He struggled to do so in April, notably allowing five steals to the Reds his last time out; a Giants club that stole 93 bases last season has surely taken notice.
