San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants still lead the entire league with their record at 83-45 and they own a comfortable 2.5 game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Prior to their loss against the Atlanta Braves, this team was on a five-game winning streak beating the New York Mets and Oakland Athletics. The big fallout during the last game was at the bottom of the seventh inning where they gave up 4 RBIs. Buster Posey was the leading RBI getter with two while Wilmer Flores and Alex Dickerson each had one. Kevin Gausman struggled on the pitch as he only had two strikeouts in six innings.
Players to watch: Mike Yastrzemski RF (GP 108, AB 379, R 62, H 84, 2B 23, 3B 3, HR 20, RBI 50, TB 173, BB 41, SO 102, SB 3, AVG 0.222, OBP 0.308, SLG 0.456, OPS 0.764, WAR 1.9), Brandon Crawford SS (GP 106, AB 368, R 58, H 109, 2B 23, 3B 2, HR 19, RBI 73, TB 193, BB 39, SO 85, SB 10, AVG 0.296, OBP 0.362, SLG 0.524, OPS 0.887, WAR 4.4).
The Atlanta Braves are the fourth-best team in the National League with their record at 69-58. They are evened up with the San Diego Padres in wins and a loss here will bring them down a notch. After entering this game on back-to-back losses after their nine-game winning streak, the Braves surprised the Giants with a strong seventh inning that helped them seal the game, and thanks to Jorge Soler doing three of the team’s total RBIs. Ozzie Albies and Adam Duval each had one RBI and much credit to pitcher Max Fried for throwing five strikeouts in six innings.
Players to Watch: Ozzie Albies 2B (GP 124, AB 494, R 79, H 127, 2B 32, 3B 6, HR 22, RBI 84, TB 237, BB 42, SO 101, SB 16, AVG 0.257, OBP 0.317, SLG 0.48, OPS 0.797, WAR 2.6), Dansby Swanson SS (GP 126, AB 476, R 68, H 127, 2B 30, 3B 2, HR 25, RBI 77, TB 236, BB 37, SO 127, SB 9, AVG 0.267, OBP 0.322, SLG 0.496, OPS 0.818, WAR 2.1).
