San Francisco Giants
The Giants are on a little bit of a run. They beat the Dodgers in three out of four over the long weekend and then took two of three from the Padres with a 9–4 win on Wednesday.
San Francisco is up over .500 but now hits the road after seven in a row at home. It won’t be back at home until the week after next; the Giants go to Atlanta, then Philly, then Pittsburgh before returning to the Bay to play Cincinnati.
Chris Stratton only threw 58 innings last season but it was the most substantial work of his young career thus far. He’s started six games already this season and looks like he’s about to have his first full season as a Major League starter.
It’s nothing fancy with Stratton, but he’s getting results. His ERA is better than average and his WHIP is down around 1.20. He’s eating innings and giving his offense a chance. With the way the offense has been producing lately, he’s just got to do what he’s been doing on Friday and he should win it.
But Mike Foltynewicz is tough. He didn’t have the cleanest start to the season but he’s still only given up 24 hits in 32 innings and is punching out more than one an inning, well more than one an inning.
He also hasn’t given up more than two earned runs in a single one of his six starts all season. He’s gone at least five innings in all but one of his outings (he came an out away from getting thru the fifth). So perhaps I was tough on him in the opening.
Fifteen walks in 32 innings is too many, though. That’s what he has to work on. And for a guy who is as good as Foltynewicz to have a clear plan of what he has to get better at going forward usually means good things. He should continue to flourish and emerge as a top-two starting pitcher in a five-man rotation for the Braves.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: it’s close.
Some books offer daily +4.5 lines in baseball. This is one of those games I would be willing to lay -500 to get either team with 4.5. I don’t see either offense pulling away from the other.
