Bumgarner's one-out double, which ended his 0-for-15 streak, in the third set up the tying run. He scored on Keppinger's single.
Josh Wilson, sans sunglasses, lost a pop up in the sun that allowed Huff to reach base leading off the fourth. Nate Schierholtz forced him at second but Belt followed with a hit-and-run single. Fontenot followed with a sacrifice fly to make it 2-1.
"I usually don't like wearing them. It darkens the ball," Wilson said. "In hindsight, I probably should have had them on. It didn't get into the sun until late. I had it probably until it was less than 20 feet above my head and that's when it finally went in the sun."
Bumgarner retired 12 of 14 batters at one point. He gave way to Sergio Romo with two outs and a runner on in the eighth.
Gallardo, who threw eight shutout innings against the Giants on May 29 in Milwaukee, has not won two in a row since his six-game winning streak ended June 9. He's 3-5 over his last nine starts.
