SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – Left-hander Madison Bumgarner has been selected the San Francisco Giants’ opening day starter.

Manager Bruce Bochy made the announcement Tuesday at spring training that Bumgarner would pitch March 31 at Arizona. This marks Bumgarner’s first opening day start. He was the only member of the San Francisco rotation with a winning record last season at 13-9 with a 2.77 ERA in 31 starts and 201 1-3 innings. He made his first NL All-Star team.

Righty Matt Cain went Game 1 last season, when the Giants wound up missing the playoffs a year after winning their second World Series title in three years.
