Analysis: Graveman left the game with a 5-3 lead and was in line to win his fourth straight decision. Graveman finished the season with a 5-0 record at the Coliseum in 11 starts. He joins Kenny Rogers as the only starting pitchers in Oakland history to go undefeated at home with at least five decisions.

Graveman did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.39 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: A lengthy rain delay cut Graveman's outing short and denied him a chance at a second consecutive winning start. The right-hander hasn't pitched particularly well since returning from a shoulder injury in early August, though he did hold the Astros to one run through six innings in his previous assignment.

Aug. 31 9:21 AM PT10:21 AM MT11:21 AM CT12:21 PM ET12:21 ET16:21 GMT0:21 9:21 AM MST11:21 AM EST11:51 AM VEN20:21 UAE11:21 AM CT-Kendall Graveman allowed five runs on six hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-8 on Wednesday. Graveman struck out five, ending the game with a 4.54 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This poor outing came as a surprise after Graveman posted a 2.25 ERA in his previous three starts and a 3.19 ERA in his previous nine against the Angels. He served up three homers Wednesday after not allowing one in four straight outings. Graveman faces the Angels again Tuesday in Oakland, and the change of location could make a big difference. He's 3-0 with a 2.78 ERA in seven home starts this year, and he owns a 2.08 ERA in four at home vs. the Angels.

Graveman struck out three, ending the game with a 4.54 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After mostly struggling in his first two starts off the disabled list, Graveman has permitted just four runs and no homers in 13 innings over his past two. The right-hander next gets the Rangers at home on Friday, and he's 2-0 with a 2.97 ERA in six starts at the Coliseum this season.

Graveman did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.96 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Graveman's first start in 11 weeks after being sidelined by a shoulder injury was easily the worst of his nine outings this season. However, Graveman didn't sound too discouraged.
