The Giants, who lead the best-of-five series 2-1, would clinch a spot in the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies with a win over the Atlanta Braves. A loss by the Giants would set up a game five.
Madison Bumgarner, who spent a brief time with the Fresno Grizzlies, is scheduled to be on the mound for the Giants. Derek Lowe will start for the Braves. Lowe, who was on the mound in the first game of this NLDS, left the contest in the sixth inning.
