SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mike Foltynewicz has minimal experience pitching in meaningful September games [url=]Colby Rasmus Jersey[/url] , so saving the Braves bullpen and going the distance as NL East-leading Atlanta gained separation in the division meant so much at this stage.Foltynewicz pitched a six-hitter to win for the first time in nearly a month, Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer after entering as an injury replacement and the Braves sent the San Francisco Giants to a 10th straight defeat with a 4-1 win Tuesday night.“It’s just really good to go out there and put up a game like this against these guys in the middle of September,” Foltynewicz said. “This is kind of my first time really pitching in September. Just going out there, I felt strong the whole game. It’s in the playoff race. Not too many of us are used to that. We’re just taking it day by day, pitch by pitch and we’re having a lot of fun doing it, too.”Foltynewicz (11-9) retired 13 straight batters after Evan Longoria’s two-out double in the first. The right-hander carried a shutout into the ninth before allowing Brandon Crawford’s two-out RBI single. Atlanta’s starter struck out seven and walked one while finishing with 108 pitches. He was still hitting the high 90s on the radar gun in the late innings.It marked Foltynewicz’s first victory since Aug. 13 against Miami, ending a four-start winless stretch during which he was 0-2 following a three-start winning streak.Dansby Swanson added an RBI double in the eighth for the Braves [url=][/url ] , who moved 6 1/2 games ahead of the Phillies in the division.Ender Inciarte had a sacrifice fly in the fourth then Culberson followed Ronald Acuna Jr.’s leadoff triple in the fifth with his 11th home run. He replaced injured third baseman Johan Camargo, who exited with left groin tightness.“Charlie’s been doing that all year. Somebody goes down, he just steps in and does a great job,” manager Brian Snitker said.The Giants have just their third double-digit losing streak since moving West in 1958 — also in 1985 and 1996 — and sixth since 1908. The club’s last 11-game skid was in 1951, when the New York Giants went on to win an NL pennant.San Francisco held a brief team meeting Tuesday.“I think they’ll get through this and play better the last 16 games. We have to,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “We can’t get any worse, to be honest [url=]Andrew Cashner Jersey[/url] , with what’s been going on offensively. We have to get some guys to get some big hits for us.”Giants lefty Andrew Suarez (6-11) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, struck out three and walked three.SEPT. 11 REMEMBEREDA moment of silence was held before the anthem to remember the victims of Sept. 11, 2001.TRAINER’S ROOMBraves: Camargo will sit Wednesday but expects to play Friday back home, though Snitker wants to see him work out first. Camargo said he “didn’t feel anything serious” — more like his groin had cramped up after running to first on a fielding error in the third. He was lifted for a pinch-runner as a precaution. … RHP Arodys Vizcaino (right shoulder inflammation) is scheduled to join the team Friday back home and come off the disabled list. … Snitker will have a well-rested bullpen Wednesday after using just three relievers for an inning each during Monday’s 4-1 win.Giants: 1B Brandon Belt may need offseason surgery on his right knee, something that is being discussed, though as of now the plan is for him to finish out the season. While he pinch hit in the eighth, he wasn’t in the lineup as Bochy said [url=][/url ] , “Belt is sore to a point where he needs a day today.” Belt had been in the original lineup and is expected to play Wednesday afternoon’s series finale. … INF Ryder Jones is scheduled for surgery on the patellar tendon in his left knee Wednesday and expects to be ready for spring training. He was hurt on a swing during Sunday’s game in Milwaukee.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Anibal Sanchez (6-5, 3.09 ERA) tries for his first win in seven starts — he’s 0-2 during that span — since beating the Mets on Aug. 3.Giants: LHP Derek Holland (7-8, 3.54) faces the Braves for just the second time in his career and first in exactly four years, since Sept. 12, 2014. Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal believes the team failed Clayton Kershaw in its 6-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.Grandal told reporters the Dodgers "let down" their ace Friday night."He's out on the mound competing as much as he possibly can, and we pretty much just let him down," Grandal said. "I think that's the biggest thing."Kershaw only made it through three innings against the Brewers. The three-time NL Cy Young winner allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks.On a night where few things went right early for the Dodgers [url=]Jeremy Hellickson Jersey[/url] , Grandal was particularly bad behind the plate.He allowed a passed ball that enabled Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich to advance in the third inning after surrendering a first-inning passed ball. He was also called for interference when his glove made contact with the bat of Jesus Aguilar, wiping out a terrific diving catch by first baseman David Freese that would have been the second out in the third.After Hernan Perez hit a sacrifice fly in the third, Grandal was charged with an error after a missed catch on Cody Bellinger's throw from center field.Kershaw's postseason struggles have been well-documented. The southpaw threw 74 pitches against the Brewers after needing just 85 to get through eight innings in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves. His career playoff ERA sits at 4.26 over 26 appearances. He owns a 2.39 ERA in 318 regular-season games.
