    Johnny Cueto went seven straight innings on Monday, but the Giants offense mustered nothing as they lost for the seventh straight time.

    Cueto allowed five hits and two earned runs, but Braves starter R.A. Dickey shutout the Giants for seven innings.

    Matt Adams and Dansby Swanson each drove in two runs in the Braves' 9-0 win. Danny Santana added a three-run homer in a seven-run eighth inning.

    The Giants managed just four hits in the loss. Denard Span, Eduardo Nunez, Brandon Belt and Kelby Tomlinson accounted for all the offense.

    The loss drops the Giants to 20 games under .500 (26-46).
