SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Matt Cain is set to pitch for the final time in his accomplished career with the San Francisco Giants.

A day before his 33rd birthday, he figures to get a loud cheer from the home fans at AT&T Park today when he faces San Diego.

Cain helped the Giants win a pair of World Series championships and also pitched a perfect game.
