The Atlanta Braves need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Braves have scored 17 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Braves have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Nick Markakis leads Atlanta with 118 hits and 34 RBI while Cameron Maybin and Andrelton Simmons have combined for 77 RBI. The Atlanta Braves have split their last six home games. Shelby Miller takes the hill, and he’s 5-8 with a 2.44 ERA and 111 strikeouts this season. Miller is 2-1 with a 1.40 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 23-6 in their last 29 during game 2 of a series and 3-7 in Peavys last 10 starts. The Braves are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 1-11 in Millers last 12 starts. The Giants are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
Miller has lost his last four starts, and the Braves have not won with him on the hill since June 13th. Um... Not sure how anyone can back the Braves here regardless of how they've looked their last two games. Give me the Giants.
