Young pitchers get nods for Braves, Giants

The San Francisco Giants pitching staff will get its chance to cool down the hot bat being swung by Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman when the two clubs begin a series on Monday.

The pitching matchup for the opener of four-game set in San Francisco features Atlanta rookie Mike Soroka (4-1, 0.98 ERA) against San Francisco left-hander Andrew Suarez, who is making his first appearance for the Giants this season.

The Braves are coming off a 4-2 homestand against St. Louis and Milwaukee and have won seven of their last nine. The Giants won the final two games of their three-game series at Arizona and have won four of their last six games entering a seven-game homestand.
