Teheran and the Cy Young award have been used in the same sentence this season. He has pitched that well with 6 straight quality starts and he’s on a current 3-game stretch of 24 innings allowing 1 run and striking out 17. Giants starter Vogelsong has been solid at home, but hasn’t put it together on the road with a bloated 15.19 ERA in 2 starts. In all fairness one of the games was his opener in LA and the other was in Colorado. I expect him to turn it around today versus the Braves with their struggling offense. Clint Fagan is the ump behind home plate tonight with his 1-4 over/under record with a per game average of 5.20 runs.
