The Atlanta Braves will look to get back in the win column Saturday night when they continue their series against the San Francisco Giants.

Jose Bautista will make his second straight start at third base for the Braves. Kurt Suzuki returns to the lineup at catcher while Brandon McCarthy will be on the mound.

The Braves have only faced Giants’ starter Ty Blach once so most of the lineup hasn’t seen him.

  • Ender Inciarte - 1-for-2, 2 BB
  • Nick Markakis - 1-for-4, RBI
  • Tyler Flowers - 2-for-3

Gregor Blanco moves to the top of the order for the Giants on Saturday.

Here is how the Giants have performed against McCarthy.

  • Evan Longoria - 6-for-20, 2 HR
  • Hunter Pence - 8-for-20, HR, 2 2B, 3B
  • Brandon Crawford - 7-for-17, 2 2B, 2 3B
  • Nick Hundley - 6-for-16, HR
  • Brandon Belt - 3-for-12, HR
  • Buster Posey - 3-for-13, 2B
  • Andrew McCutchen - 4-for-10, 2B
  • Pablo Sandoval - 3-for-12
  • Gregor Blanco - 1-for-7
