San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants need to get more production from Jake Peavy. Peavy has had a nightmare so far and his days as a starter might be in jeopardy. The 34-year-old is 1-5 with a 7.26 ERA in 10 starts this season.
Peavy is coming off his best start of the season (6.2 IP, 1 ER), but it was against the San Diego Padres.
The Giants have enough offense to pick up Peavy. San Francisco is tied for eighth in the league in runs (231) and they are ninth in batting average (.262).
Hunter Pence has been a bright spot all year for the Giants. Pence is hitting .309 to go along with seven homers and 36 RBI.
Peavy is 0-3 with an ERA of 10 in four road starts this year.
Atlanta is playing their best baseball of the season having won three of four. The Braves only have 15 wins on the year but they’re playing with a lot of confidence as of late.
Nick Markakis (.246) has played much better as of late going 6-of-15 over the last four games.
Wisler has been good for the Braves this year. In 10 appearances (9 starts), he is 2-4 with a 3.08 ERA. He has only given up 48 hits in 61.1 innings on the year. The problem is that Atlanta hasn’t provided him with any run support.
The Braves are 2-7 in Wisler’s nine starts on the season.
