Bumgarner will take the hill for the Giants in Wednesday's NL Wild Card game, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bumgarner was scratched from his regularly scheduled start Sunday in anticipation of starting in this deciding game. The 25-year-old lefty leads the Giants' staff in wins (18), ERA (2.98) and strikeouts (219), making him the clear-cut choice to start in this one-and-done scenario. He'll face either the Cardinals or the Pirates, depending on how Sunday's games play out.
