SAN FRANCISCO -- Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz gave up a homer to Brandon Crawford to lead off the second inning, then got three straight outs on 12 pitches.The 24-year-old right-hander with electric stuff is growing up quickly, and its already paying dividends for Atlanta.Matt Kemp hit a three-run homer and Foltynewicz pitched 7 2/3 strong innings, leading the Braves over the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Saturday night.Foltynewicz (7-4) struck out six and allowed five hits and a walk for just his second quality start in eight games.Best one of the year I would think, said Braves interim manager Brian Snitker. I thought he kept everything together really well.His only mistake came when Crawford socked an 0-1 fastball for his 12th homer. Crawford also doubled.A couple of starts before that, I might have gotten a little upset after that, maybe the next guy wouldve been walked, Foltynewicz said. I just kept the same game plan and didnt shy away from anything.San Francisco fell to 13-26 since the All-Star break, the worst record in the majors over that stretch. The Giants were seeking their first three-game winning streak since winning four in a row just before the break.The Giants fell two games behind the Dodgers for first in the NL West. Los Angeles beat the Chicago Cubs 3-2 earlier Saturday.Kemp homered in the fourth to make it 3-1 against emergency starter Albert Suarez (3-2). Suarez was called up from Triple-A Sacramento to start in place of Jake Peavy, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.For the first three innings all his pitches were crisp and hitting their spots, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Suarez. The pitch hed like back would the one to Kemp. It got away from him. That three-run homer was the difference in the game and our (bullpen) did a great job to hold them there.Kemps homer helped settle the young Braves pitcher.It was hit well, Foltynewicz said. I think at that point when he hit that home run, thats all I needed.The last-place Braves had lost 12 of 16 going into Saturday.The Giants were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position.Jim Johnson pitched a perfect ninth for his 13th save.SCORELESS STREAK SNAPPEDPrior to Kemps homer, the Giants had thrown 25 consecutive scoreless innings going back to the fifth inning of a 1-0 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: RHP Chris Withrow, on the DL with right elbow inflammation, started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnet on Thursday and is on track to return the team by Sept. 1, interim manager Brian Snitker said.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt was a late scratch with neck tightness. Belt struck out pinch-hitting in the eighth inning. INF Conor Gillaspie replaced Belt at first. ... Peavys move to the DL is retroactive to Aug. 21. Peavy underwent an MRI on Saturday, the results of which werent immediately known, manager Bruce Bochy said. ... OF Hunter Pence also underwent an MRI on Saturday for his strained right hamstring. Bochy said Pence is day to day and he expects Pence to return to the lineup on Tuesday in Arizona. ... RHP Matt Cain, who went on the DL on Aug. 18 with a lower back strain, was scheduled to start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday. Hes expected to slot into the fifth spot in the rotation the next time it comes up on Sept. 2.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Aaron Blair was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnet to pitch the series finale in San Francisco. Blair is 0-5 with a 7.99 ERA in 11 starts with the Braves.Giants: Since the All-Star break, LHP Madison Bumgarner is 2-4 with a 3.71 ERA and four quality starts in eight outings. Bumgarner gave up a season-high five earned runs in five innings against the Dodgers last time out. Hes 6-0 with a 1.75 ERA in his last seven starts against the Braves. Clay Buchholz Jersey .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. Zack Greinke Jersey . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. Yasmany Tomas Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. Chris Owings Jersey . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. LAS VEGAS -- Before DAngelo Russell showed off the ice in his veins in the Los Angeles Lakers 70-69 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Jerami Grant had the highlight of the most-hyped matchup of Las Vegas Summer League on Saturday.Midway through the third quarter, T.J. McConnell drove downhill on the left side of the floor as Grant ran the right sideline and cut toward the rim. McConnell dished a no-look pass to Grant, who took one dribble past Brandon Ingram, launched into the air and dunked on a rotating Ivica Zubac.Ive been working on my explosiveness, Grant said. I saw him under there and I just went for it. ... I knew if he jumped, I was going to dunk on him. I didnt expect him to actually jump.Grant got up so high that his right leg cleared Zubacs head, reminiscent of Vince Carters infamous dunk over French center Frédéric Weis in the 2000 Olympics.It was unbelievable, Sixers summer league coach Lloyd Pierce said. Jerami is a special athlete. It was a great play. It was a momentum play for us at that time. I think we ended up going [16] points up.Zubac, a native Croatian, couldnt hhelp but laugh at himself afterward, admitting that he wasnt expecting Grant to posterize him.ddddddddddddWe dont have that in Europe, Zubac said. I thought he was going to pump fake, so I didnt jump, and then he jumped on me.When told that someone had changed his Wikipedia page to say he had died Saturday after Grant dunked on him, Zubac smirked and agreed.I did a little bit, Zubac said.Larry Nance Jr., who had several impressive dunks of his own on Saturday, believes the dunk can be a learning experience for Zubac. Next time the rookie center rotates over toward a cutter, he will either aggressively attempt to block the dunk or take a foul.Yeah, he got dunked on. Everybody does, Nance Jr. said. Jerami is a terrific athlete. I told him when he got dunked on, Ill get him back for you. I did. Thats my center, I got his back.We told him next time somebody goes up on you like that, make your presence felt. Nothing dirty, but just make sure he knows youre there.
