Giants-Braves Preview

(AP) -- Buster Posey is in the midst of the kind of stretch that can lead to an MVP award. There's little reason to believe the All-Star won't be able to keep it going back home.

The Georgia native looks to continue his lengthy tear at the plate as the San Francisco Giants try to avoid their first back-to-back losses in almost a month Monday night against the Atlanta Braves.

Posey has batted .446 in his 16 games played during the Giants' 14-4 stretch that has helped the defending World Series champions close the gap in the NL West. However, they fell 2 1/2 games back Sunday with a 2-1 loss at Texas and a win by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
