Please help-out a baseball newbie

I'm visiting San Francisco in May and am hoping to go to my first ever baseball game. According to the Giants website they're playing the Diamondbacks on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, and Thursday from mid-day on the days I'm in town. What's that all about? I thought baseball was a one day game. Are they playing three separate games, or is it one game spread over three days?

Given that I've never even watched a game on TV (I'm from the UK) let alone been to one, which would be the best day to go? I'm more interested in a good atmosphere and an all-round enjoyable time than the seeing the most technically proficient passage of play (although I guess the two usually go hand in hand).
Finally, for anyone familiar with the ground, which is the best stand? For example, at a cricket ground, the purists would be sitting behind the bowlers arm, jotting down the outcome of every ball in their notebooks. Most of the singing and cheering, however, would be coming from somewhere else. I want to sit in that stand, if such a thing exists in baseball.
