It’s time for a new series, and the San Francisco Giants are playing the Atlanta Braves, who you might remember from, you know ... a few days ago. And also from such hits as “being the best team in baseball.”

So that’s fun.

The Giants will have a slightly altered roster for the game, as outfielder Michael Conforto has been placed on the 10-day Injured List and replaced by fellow outfielder Heliot Ramos, who was just optioned a few days ago.

Taking the mound for the Giants is righty Logan Webb, who makes his 27th start. He’s 9-9 on the year, with a 3.36 ERA, a 3.27 FIP, and 162 strikeouts to 26 walks in 169 innings. His 1.4 walks per 9 innings leads the National League. Webb’s last outing was against the Braves, and he gave up four runs in six innings.

On the other side is righty Spencer Strider, making his 26th start. He’s 14-4 with a 3.57 ERA, a 2.87 FIP, and 227 strikeouts to 46 walks in 146.1 innings. He leads the Majors with that strikeout total and that win total, as well as with his mark of 14.0 strikeouts per 9 innings. His FIP leads the NL, and he struck out 10 Giants in seven shutout innings his last time out.
