Giants lose Friday to Atlanta.

Chipper Jones hit a two-run double, Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman each singled in runs during a decisive four-run third inning to back Tommy Hanson and the Atlanta Braves
 beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Friday night.       

The Braves knocked Madison Bumgarner (0-3) out early and showed no signs of fatigue following a 5-3, 12-inning loss at Los Angeles on Thursday, taking the opener of a weekend series and rematch of last fall's NL division series won by the World Series champion Giants.

Hanson (2-3), who had a no-decision in Game 2 of the playoffs against the Giants, struck out seven and walked one in seven strong innings as the Braves won for just the second time in their last
 six games.
