Lineups: Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants, May 6

It’s a battle of rookie starting pitchers. The Braves do not have any experience against Suarez as this will only be his third start in the Majors. The young Suarez does not give up many walks and is around the plate but has already allowed 3 home runs in two games. Here is how the Braves will take aim in this afternoon matinee. .@Mike_Soroka28 makes his @SunTrustPark debut today at 1:35 ET! #ChopOnGame Preview: https://t.co/gAmcr5lBYz pic.twitter.com/SlTC6rCX4v— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) May 6, 2018 The Giants have not seen Mike Soroka at all either and the Braves stud rookie will...

McCarthy struggles as Braves fall to Giants

McCarthy struggles as Braves fall to Giants

San Francisco continues to beat up on Atlanta pitching. Brandon McCarthy struggled as the Atlanta Braves dropped their second straight with a 11-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. For the second straight night the Braves jumped out to an early lead but were unable to maintain it. Ozzie Albies led off with a double, moved up to third on a ground out by Ronald Acuña Jr. and scored on a ground out by Freddie Freeman to put Atlanta in front 1-0. It was all down hill from there as the Giants came right back in the second against McCarthy with a two-run double by Alen Hanson to give San...

Braves can’t overcome early deficit in 9-4 loss to Giants

Braves can’t overcome early deficit in 9-4 loss to Giants

Mike Foltynewicz got hit hard early and the bullpen gave up homers late as the Giants snapped Atlanta’s five-game winning streak. Like many recent Atlanta Braves games, the offense started tonight’s series opening contest against the San Francisco Giants on a roll. Unfortunately, the pitching could not contain the Giants’ bats and the offense could not cash in a key hit when needed, and the Braves fell by a 9-4 score, snapping their five-game winning streak. The first inning was fun, even if the others weren’t. Mike Foltynewicz had a bit of an adventure, allowing a one-out walk and...

Jose Bautista batting fifth in Braves debut, Camargo starting at shortstop versus Giants

Joey Bats is up and starting at the hot corner. Dansby Swanson is still out of the lineup. Here’s how the Giants line up against Mike Foltynewicz tonight. The road trip begins tonight in Atlanta! ⏲️ First pitch: 4:35 PM PDT #SFGiants pic.twitter.com/2P9khkaNHe— San Francisco Giants (@SFGiants) May 4, 2018 These Giants have faced Mike Foltynewicz a veritable ton, which makes sense given that their team features a bunch of veterans and Foltynewicz now has a fair bit of innings under his belt. They have a combined nine homers off of him (Belt with three, Crawford with three,...
