The Atlanta Braves and San Diego Padres will meet again Wednesday afternoon in the rubber match of a three-game series at Petco Park. The Padres took the first game 11-4 on Monday while Atlanta bounced back in a big way with a 14-1 rout on Tuesday.

Mike Foltynewicz will be on the mound for the Braves and is coming off one of the best starts of his career. Folty sput a two-hit complete-game shutout and equaled a career-high with 11 strikeouts in his last outing against the Nationals. For the season, he has a 2.22 ERA and has allowed two earned runs or less in 11 of his 12 starts.

The Padres will have a bullpen day on Wednesday with lefty Matt Strahm getting the start. Strahm pitched a scoreless inning in Monday’s game against Atlanta and hasn’t allowed a run in his last three appearances. He also hasn’t gone longer than two innings in any game this season. He has a 2.92 ERA in nine games overall this season.
