Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner hit his 13th career home run on Thursday, and now has the most home runs of any active pitcher in the major leagues.

Bumgarner started the scoring off Braves pitcher Aaron Blair with a towering two-run shot to left that left his bat at 109 mph. It was Bumgarner’s second bomb of the season; his other came on April 9 against the Dodgers.

The Giants went on to score six in the inning off Blair with two more two-run shots.

Bumgarner also recorded his third double-digit strikeout game of the season.
