The San Francisco Giants welcome the Oakland Athletics to Oracle Park tonight as the two kick off the first leg of the Bay Bridge Series.

The Giants are finally home from a long, but ultimately quite successful road trip, but they sent today’s starting pitcher, Carlos Rodón, home a day early so he would be rested for his start. Rodón has been fantastic this season so far. In his first three starts, he’s only allowed two runs on eight hits, with 29 strikeouts to six walks in 17 innings pitched.

He’ll be facing off against right hander Daulton Jefferies, a Northern California native and graduate of UC Berkeley. Jefferies has also had a strong start to the season, in his first three starts, he’s allowed only two runs on 12 hits, with nine strikeouts and three walks in 15 innings pitched.
