There’s nothing like a good ole trip to the East Coast to throw things out of wack. The Giants were set to begin a four-game series with the Nationals on Thursday night, as part of their six-game road trip which started with a two-game split against the Rangers, in Arlington Texas.
Manager Gabe Kapler said prior to Thursday’s scheduled 7:05 p.m. P.T. start that he was talking with the Nationals’ grounds crew chief and keeping his players and staff updated about a possible rain delay. The team has now announced that Thursday’s game will be postponed to Saturday, and held as part of a doubleheader, with two seven-inning games.
The following is from the Giants, with details on the new schedule:
“Tonight’s SF @ WSH game has been postponed due to rain and rescheduled as a split doubleheader on Saturday, June 12th.
The game will be made up as follows on Saturday, June 12th:
• Game 1 will be the rescheduled game from tonight, starting at 2:05 PM ET
• Game 2 will be the originally scheduled game, which will remain at 7:15 PM ET
Both games of the split doubleheader will be seven-inning regulation games.”
