The Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Atlanta Braves look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Braves have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Atlanta Braves have won their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Braves with 58 hits and 29 RBI while Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. have combined for 103 hits and 52 RBI. Julio Teheran gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 3.88 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Teheran is 2-3 with a 3.93 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Giants have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have won four of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 42 hits and 21 RBI while Joe Panik and Brandon Crawford have combined for 67 hits and 25 RBI. Shaun Anderson gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s first career game against the Braves.
The Braves are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 0-5 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 5-2 in Teheran's last 7 starts vs. National League West. The Giants are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in their last 8 vs. National League East. The under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings in San Francisco and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 10-4 in Giants last 14 overall. The under is 4-1 in Teheran's last 5 starts overall.
The Atlanta Braves offense is putting it together right now and the wins are piling up, easily their best stretch of the season. Teheran has also found his groove lately, allowing just one run in his last 17 innings. The San Francisco Giants continue to be one of the more frustrating teams in baseball, and they're throwing out a pitcher in Anderson who has just five career innings under his belt. This talented Braves lineup should help welcome the inexperienced right-hander to the big leagues
