Pre-Game & Lineups: San Franciso Giants Look To Sweep In Atlanta With Madbum

By Denise Walos

The Giants take on the Braves today for game three and are looking for a sweep with Madison Bumgarner starting at 10:35am PT.

Bumgarner (2-3, 3.74 ERA) is looking to bounce back from a few rough starts. He lost his last three decisions and last Monday against the Padres allowed four earned runs in five innings itched.

Here’s how he looks against Atlanta’s offense.

Alex Wood (LHP, 2-4, 2.93 ERA) is coming off one of his worst starts last Tuesday against the Marlins. He allowed seven runs in five innings pitched. Here is how the Giants match up against Wood, they haven’t seen much of him in the past.

The three solo home runs yesterday by Buster Posey, Brandon Belt and Michael Morse put the Giants in second in the MLB for most home runs hit (after the Rockies) with 39 so far this season. They lead the MLB in away game home runs with 26, the Angels are second with 21.
