The Dodgers are having a miserable three weeks. The Giants are having a miserable year. Tonight, together, they had a fairly miserable evening.
Their game was scheduled to start at 7:15 in San Francisco. But it was raining, complete with some pretty impressive thunder and lightning, and so the first pitch was pushed to 7:57 PDT. Not a bad rain delay, all things considered! Good, even! Great!
They got in exactly one at-bat—a Curtis Granderson strikeout at the hands of Chris Stratton—and then they were called off the field again. For well over two hours. Behold the rain delay, as documented chronologically by some fairly aggrieved beat writers:
