NEW YORK (AP) - Madison Bumgarner pitched through rain to extend his Citi Field scoreless streak to 18 innings, Hunter Pence homered and drove in three runs, and the San Francisco Giants ran at will against Noah Syndergaard in a 6-1 victory Sunday that stopped the New York Mets' eight-game winning streak.

Bumgarner (3-2) gave up six hits in six innings, struck out seven and walked three. He is 4-0 with a 0.62 ERA at Citi Field and has the longest shutout streak by an opposing pitcher in the ballpark's eight-season history.

With a fastball mostly at 91 mph, down 2 mph from early last season, he let runners reach in each of the first three innings but pitched out of trouble. After Yoenis Cespedes' third-inning double put runners at second and third, Bumgarner retired Neil Walker on an inning-ending popup.
