Atlanta vs. San Francisco,
08/25/2012 16:05 EDT,
Score: 7 - 3
Money Line: -147 San Francisco
Today's winner is San Francisco over Atlanta. This is my Grand Slam Play. Winning 5 in a row and 10 of their L13, San Francisco sits atop the NL West, 3 games ahead of Los Angeles. The Giants have taken Games 1 and 2 of this series to bring their 2012 record against the Braves up to 4 games to 1. Despite losing Cabrera to suspension, the lineup has produced 43 runs in their L8 outings, without the slugger. Madison Bumgarner gets the start here. The LH is 14-7 with a 2.83 ERA on the season and has rattled off 8 straight Quality Starts, leading the NL in Ks since the All-Star break. Bumgarner has been solid at home boasting an 8-1, 1.87 mark when hosting. He faces an Atlanta team that has dropped 6 of their L7, and are having trouble crossing the plate. Overall, the Braves possess a mediocre lineup. Mike Minor takes the bump here. The LH is 6-10 this season, including a 2-6, 5.91 road record and is 0-3 in his L3 starts. The Braves are 1-7 their L8 games played as a road 'dog, 1-4 their L5 games played following a loss, and 0-4 in Minor's L4 starts away from home. The Giants are 21-6 their L27 games played as a home favorite of -110 to -150, 8-3 their L11 overall games played as a fav, and 26-6 in Bumgarner's L32 starts as a favorite. Take San Francisco. Thank you.
