After going right-handed heavy against Braves left-hander Max Fried, Giants manager Bruce Bochy is placing his lefties back at the top of the order on Thursday for the series finale at Oracle Park.
With right-handed pitcher Kevin Gausman on the hill for Atlanta, three of the Giants' first four hitters will be lefties. Ironically, lefties (.205) are hitting worse than right-handers (.258) against Gausman this season.
Madison Bumgarner will be on the bump for the Giants. And the Braves will be watching him closely as they think about potentially trading for him later this season.
First pitch is scheduled for 12:45 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Bay Area and streaming on the MyTeams app.
Here are the lineups for both teams:
Atlanta Braves (27-23)
Ronald Acuña Jr., CF
Dansby Swanson, SS
Freddie Freeman, 1B
Josh Donaldson, 3B
Austin Riley, LF
Ozzie Albies, 2B
Charlie Culberson, RF
Tyler Flowers, C
Kevin Gausman, RHP (2-3, 4.31 ERA)
