Giants lose to the Braves 3-1

The hot-hitting Giants are quieted in a boring 3-1 loss to the Braves

0

San Francisco – The Giants, winners of their last two have been playing well as things started to look up for the struggling ball-club. The team is coming off their second shutout in as many games and looking to take another game from the Braves. Yesterdays game was a scheduled start for Jake Peavy, who was supposed to start for the injured Matt Cain, who pitched 5 innings for AAA Sacramento last night. Peavy was surprisingly placed on the DL hours before game time yesterday with a lower-back strain. Albert Suarez would be called up to replace Peavy for a spot start as he looked to get the team its third straight win.

Last nights game was pretty uneventful, the Giants only scored one run on an opposite-field home run from Brandon Crawford. Albert Suarez pitched pretty decent despite only going four and a third innings and giving up three. Suarez looked to be in control throughout his short outing, but made one big mistake to who else, but Matt Kemp. Kemp launched a three-run homer to straight-away center for the Braves only (and winning) runs of the game.

The Giants offense, other than the Crawford homer,  had some big hits including doubles from Albert Suarez, Brandon Crawford and Denard Span but could not cash in as they stranded nine runners on base. Mike Foltynewicz, pitcher for the Braves went seven and two-thirds innings only allowing one run as he dominated the Giant’s hot offense.

Finals for last nights game:

Braves: 3 Giants: 1

W: Foltynewicz (W, 7-5) L: Suarez (3-2) SV: Johnson (13)

Tune in this afternoon at  1:05 PM PST as Madison Bumgarner takes on Aaron Blair in the rubber match of this three game series.
