The Giants and Athletics wrap up their set of games at AT&T Park on Tuesday night before heading to the Oakland Coliseum for the remainder of the home-and-home series. Albert Suarez, who continues to pitch in place of Matt Cain in the Giants' rotation, will make his first start at home since June 13.
He's proved to be much more effective at AT&T Park, posting a 2.12 ERA, compared to a 5.03 mark on the road. Giants pitchers have received plenty of run support for the most part recently. The team entered the series with the A's averaging six runs per game in its last seven contests.
Right-hander Kendall Graveman will be on the mound for the A's. Despite owning a 3-6 record with a 4.68 ERA on the season, Graveman has allowed just three earned runs in his last two starts, both of which were against the Los Angeles Angels.
