First pitch is scheduled for a late 10:15 p.m. from AT&T Ballpark in San Francisco.
Sheets has not been sharp over his last two starts, as the veteran righty starter has given up a combined 10 earned runs to the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers and lost both decisions. Before losing the two starts, Sheets had been victorious in four of his first five appearances of the season.
Atlanta continues to trail the Nationals in the NL East race, but are in the thick of things when it comes to the two Wild Card spots in the National League.
