We interrupt this regular old Tuesday night to inform you that Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner is working on a perfect game at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. He has not allowed a hit or a walk through seven innings and he’s thrown just 78 pitches despite striking out nine Colorado hitters.

Updates to come as Bumgarner tries for history.

*********************

UPDATE, 12:22 a.m. ET: Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau opened the top of the eighth inning with a double down the right field line. So much for that. Blame us if you want to. Bumgarner struck out the next three batters he faced — shutout intact.

*********************

UPDATE, 12:51 a.m. ET: Bumgarner went the distance for a one-hit shutout. He struck out 13.

    He’s gonna do it. No doubt in my mind.

      Or not.

      Still had great stuff. Just goes to show you how tough throwing one really is.

    Not a Giants fan by any means, but I would love to see this kid do it. He deserves it.

    He is a beast. Aside from Kershaw, he is the best lefty in the NL.
