He has given up 1 run on 3 hits with 1 walk and 10 strikeouts in 7 innings against the Braves in his career.
Atlanta are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against San Francisco.
Atlanta are 14-5 SU in their last 19 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Atlanta's last 5 games when playing on the road against San Francisco.
San Francisco are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of San Francisco's last 8 games against Atlanta.
San Francisco are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.
The Giants coulnd't do much against Kyle Wright and the Braves bullpen who held them to only 1 run but they might have better chances this time as they'll now face Charlie Morton who has struggled lately and has allowed 4 runs in 2 of his last 3 starts. Carlos Rodon will start for the Giants who has been solid this season and dominated the Braves earlier this season. Morton has struggled on the road while Rodon has been sharp at home so I think the Giants can take this series at home.
