It’s time for some Saturday night baseball, and it’s another critical game with serious postseason implications for both teams: your beloved San Francisco Giants, and the visiting Atlanta Braves.

For the Giants it’s the return of Alex Wood, who has been on the Injured List due to a case of COVID-19. He hasn’t pitched since late August, but when healthy has had a solid season, with a 4.08 ERA, a 3.71 FIP, and 135 strikeouts to 39 walks in 125.2 innings.

He’s up against veteran righty Charlie Morton, who is having another fine season, with a 3.49 ERA, a 3.30 FIP, and 192 strikeouts to 51 walks in 165 innings.

This should be a fun one. It’s certainly an important one!
