How the game was won: Madison Bumgarner dominated and Williams Perez definitely did not.
The Giants’ ace finished his 7 1/3 innings with one run allowed on seven hits while striking out nine and walking none.
Five days after allowing a career-high nine runs in 4 1/3 innings, Perez allowed six runs (five earned) on 10 hits and two walks over six-plus innings.
San Francisco chased Perez from the game after he walked Nori Aoki and allowed a single by Gregor Blanco and a double by Matt Duffy before he recorded an out in the seventh. Duffy later scored off of Jake Brigham on Hunter Pence’s RBI single.
The Braves scored their run in the seventh after Jace Peterson singled and Ryan Lavarnway doubled him home.
Number: 12. With his first-inning single, Nick Markakis extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
What’s next: The Braves begin a four-game series against the Marlins on Thursday at Turner Field. Matt Wisler (5-2, 4.44 ERA) will start against Jose Urena (1-5, 4.37 ERA). The Marlins just lost three in a row to the Mets.
