Madison Bumgarner (14-7, 2.83 ERA) will be on the bump, which usually means good things for the Black and Orange. The left-hander's was on fire in his last start, allowing just four hits while fanning 10 in eight scoreless innings of a 2-1 win over the rival Dodgers on Monday in L.A. He is 4-2 with a 1.93 ERA over his last eight starts.
The Braves will counter with Mike Minor (6-10, 4.74), who is hoping to evade his fourth straight loss. He allowed one run and five hits in seven innings in his last start, but to no avail as they fell 5-0 loss to the Dodgers last Sunday. Minor has a 0.75 ERA in two starts against the Giants.
First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
