SAN FRANCISCO -- Marco Scutaro and Madison Bumgarner are done for the year. Barry Zito isn't, after three weeks of being buried at the back of the bullpen.
Scutaro will have a pin inserted in the pinkie finger on his left hand and is hopeful that he can correct the mallet finger injury that occurred when he was hit by a pitch on June 11.
After Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Giants also announced that left-hander Madison Bumgarner has been shut down, allowing Zito to make one final start at AT&T Park as he comes to the end of a seven-year contract.
"He's had a great year, but we're going to give him a break," Bochy said of the 24-year-old Bumgarner. "I think it's been enough for him. He's done great. If we were in a different situation, he'd be out there. But he's young and has logged a lot of innings."
Bumgarner finishes his third full season with a 13-9 record, 2.77 ERA and 199 strikeouts in 2011/3 innings pitched. After his last start, Bumgarner said it was important for him to reach the 200-inning mark, but he wasn't concerned about 200 strikeouts.
Zito hasn't pitched since Sept. 2, but has been throwing long bullpen sessions before games to stay prepared. He is 62-80 with a 4.63 ERA in orange and black but etched his name in the Giants history book with clutch starts in the NLCS and World Series last fall.
"I wanted to give him one more start," Bochy said. "He's done a lot for us. He's done everything we've asked of him. He's been great about it and has worked hard."
Bochy had plenty to say about Zito, Bumgarner and Scutaro, but Tuesday night's loss could be summed up neatly.
"(Matt) Cain pitched great," Bochy said. "We just couldn't get much going offensively."
The Giants' lone run came on Tony Abreu's fifth-inning homer. The Dodgers topped that with solo shots by Yasiel Puig, who homered on his first pitch after getting plunked, and Matt Kemp.us," Cain said.
