The Atlanta Braves will be trying to avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants when the two teams meet on Thursday afternoon. Atlanta has dropped the first two games of the series 9-0 and last night's 9-4 loss in 11 innings.
Tim Hudson will be on the mound for the Braves as he looks to bounce back from a tough outing last time out. Hudson gave up four runs in four innings last Friday. The Giants will counter with Madison Bumgarner who will be trying to extend San Francisco's longest win streak of the season. Bumgarner was solid last time out picking up his 11th win while allowing one run in seven innings of work.
