A day after general manager Bobby Evans said that the Giants and Madison Bumgarner have "mutual interest" in a contract extension, manager Bruce Bochy announced that the left-hander will be making his fifth consecutive opening day start for the orange and black. 

The news hardly comes a a surprise, as Bochy joked with reporters in Arizona...

The Giants have won three of MadBum's first four opening day assignements. But the five consecutive starts is not a record.
