The San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves face off on Wednesday at AT&T Park for game three of their series.
The San Francisco Giants have been red hot but they had few answers on Tuesday falling to the Braves. Hunter Pence had two hits and Gregor Blanco and Pablo Sandoval had hits as the Giants didn’t score on five hits. Starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong allowed seven hits and four runs while striking out eight over 6.0 innings to take the loss. For Wednesday’s game the Giants start Madison Bumgarner who has won his last two starts. For the season Bumgarner has allowed 52 hits and 15 runs while striking out 54 over 47.2 innings for a 4-3 record and a 2.83 ERA.

The Atlanta Braves have been shaky the past few weeks but they looked solid on Tuesday beating the Giants. Freddie Freeman had two hits and Justin Upton and Jason Heyward had hits as the Braves scored five runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Mike Minor allowed three hits and struck out six over 6.2 innings to get his first win of the year. For Wednesday’s game the Braves start Julio Teheran who has had three no decisions in his last four starts. For the season Teheran has allowed 36 hits and 11 earned runs while striking out 42 over 58 innings for a 2-2 record and a 1.71 ERA.
San Francisco is 5-2 against the NL East, 14-6 in their last 20 games, and 8-3 in Bumgarner’s last 11 starts. Atlanta is 5-1 in their last five games, 7-15 in game three of a series, and 7-3 in Teheran’s last 10 road starts. Atlanta is 2-4 in their last six games against San Francisco.
The Giants have been hot and I look for them to hit better here and get the win.
