Tonight’s Dodgers-Giants game postponed by rain, rescheduled as doubleheader on April 28
With rain in the forecast all evening, the game between the Dodgers and Giants scheduled for Friday was postponed. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader on April 28 at AT&T Park.
The April 28 games are scheduled to begin at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. Tickets for Friday’s game will be honored for the afternoon game.
The rain also pushed back the scheduled start of Saturday’s game. First pitch is now scheduled for 3:05 p.m., a two-hour delay from the initial time.
The Dodgers will skip Kenta Maeda, who was initially listed as Friday’s starter, and Hyun-Jin Ryu in this series. Rich Hill will start Saturday. Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday. Maeda could be available from the bullpen, as he was on Wednesday in Arizona.
The Dodgers wanted to keep Kershaw (0-2, 2.25 earned-run average) on his regular schedule. The team has days off next Monday and Thursday, sandwiched around a two-day series against Oakland.
The Dodgers split the season-opening four-game series with San Francisco. Despite the two defeats, the Dodgers limited the Giants to two runs across the four games.
The Dodgers were less fortunate this week against Arizona, getting swept by the Diamondbacks.
