Buzzkill by the Braves

Well, that didn't take long. I always say that any time a team is faced with giving up a sweep, that team's odds of sweeping become much longer.

Henry Schulman's game story for the Chronicle focuses on Tim Lincecum's start tomorrow in Philly.-- 

Though the Giants failed to complete what would have been their first sweep in Atlanta in 24 years, they did capture only their second series in 18 tries at Turner Field.
The Giants scored nine runs in each of the wins, but the proper tone was set by Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong and Bumgarner, who together allowed four runs in 20 innings.
The Giants are a pitching-first team, so the three starters who faced the Braves made an important statement after the 1-5 trip before the break. The staff ERA in those six games was 7.43.
