It’s time for the second game in a three-game series between the San Francisco Giants and Atlanta Braves, and the Giants are turning things over to the man who has been their best pitcher since the All-Star break: Logan Webb.

Webb has gone 12 straight starts without allowing more than two earned runs, a span in which the Giants have gone 11-1. On the year, Webb has a 2.84 ERA and a 3.10 FIP, with 105 strikeouts to 28 walks in 98.1 innings. Were it not for injuries, he would be flirting with a 5-WAR season, and he’s still just 24 years old.

He’s facing off against his teammate from a year ago, lefty Drew Smyly. He’s been much healthier this year than he was with the Giants, but also much worse, as he has a 4.54 ERA, a 5.04 FIP, and 104 strikeouts to 38 walks in 111 innings.
