The San Francisco Giants have their first doubleheader of the year, after Monday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies was postponed due to rain. The games will only be seven innings long, per the health and safety protocols, and the second game will start about 30 minutes after the first one concludes.

I’ll get up a second gamethread for the second game when the first one ends.

When: 2:40 p.m. PT
Where: Coors Field, Denver, Colorado
Regional broadcast: NBC Sports Bay Area (available on fuboTV)

Notes

Roster moves: The Giants made a few roster moves on Tuesday. Infielder Tommy La Stella has been placed on the 10-day Injured List (though he’s expected to miss significantly more time than that), and infielder Jason Vosler has been recalled to take his place. Left-handed pitcher Conner Menez has been added to the roster as the 27th player permitted for a doubleheader.


Enjoy the baseball, friends. And when you’re done enjoying the baseball, enjoy the extra baseball.
