The Atlanta Braves open a four-game set against the first place San Francisco Giants Monday afternoon at Turner Field.

Atlanta's home woes have been well documented but they enter Monday's contest coming off of a series win over the Miami Marlins. The Braves took the first two games against the Marlins before falling Sunday evening 7-3. Atlanta is just 4-21 this season at Turner Field.

Mike Foltynewicz will make his sixth start of the season for the Braves and is 1-2 with a 3.95 ERA. He allowed four hits and one earned run in 5 2/3 innings last time out against the Milwaukee Brewers. Four of Foltynewicz six walks this season came in his last start against Milwaukee.

He will be opposed by Giants starter Jeff Samardzija who is off to a great start this season with a 7-2 record and a 2.95 ERA. He has been down right nasty of late allowing no more than one run in each of his last three starts.
