Matt Kemp's fourth-inning home run off Albert Suarez was all Mike Foltynewicz needed as the Braves beat the Giants 3-1 Saturday night.
Before rejoining the Giants at the end of the week, Matt Cain pitched five innings in a rehab start with the River Cats on Saturday.
The Giants will be without their starting pitcher Saturday night as the team placed Jake Peavy on the 15-day DL and called up Albert Suarez.
