The Atlanta Braves, fresh off a series win over the Cincinnati Reds, roll into AT&T Park for a four-game series with the San Francisco Giants starting Thursday night.

The Giants sit half a game behind the Braves for the second best record in the National League, but they narrowly escaped being swept by the Philadelphia Phillies this week.

Dan Uggla is currently the hottest hitting Brave at the moment and is riding a six-game hitting streak, during which he is hitting .375 with three home runs.

After being held to one run over their last two games against the Nationals, the Braves have scored at least four runs all five games since.

Craig Kimbrel is still sitting on 99 career saves. He blew a chance for save no. 100 on Tuesday when he gave up back-to-back homers to the Reds.

The Braves went 3-4 against the Giants last season.

Thursday, 10:15 on Fox Sports South and MLB Network: Braves RH Julio Teheran (1-0, 5.08 ERA) vs RH Ryan Vogelsong (1-2, 7.20 ERA)

Friday, 10:15 on Fox Sports South: RH Tim Hudson (4-1, 3.83 ERA) vs RH Matt Cain (1-2, 5.57 ERA)

Saturday, 4:05 on Fox Sports South and MLB Network: LH Paul Maholm (4-3, 3.09 ERA) vs LH Madison Bumgarner (3-1, 2.31 ERA)

Sunday, 4:05 on Fox Sports South: RH Kris Medlen (1-4, 3.25 ERA) vs RH Tim Linceucum (2-2, 4.75 ERA)
