Hello and happy Friday.

The San Francisco Giants had two games against the San Diego Padres postponed last weekend, the result of a false positive coronavirus test result. They made up one of those games with a Sunday doubleheader, but still need to make up another.

They’ll do so during the final series of the season, with a Friday doubleheader at Oracle Park.

The Giants will be the home team for the first game, which will start at 4:10. They’ll be the road team for the second game, which will take place 30-45 minutes after the conclusion of the first.
