SAN FRANCISCO–After seeing two of their four games in San Diego postponed, the San Francisco Giants are seeing it happen all over again.
Due to the smoke levels reaching the high 200s, major league baseball decided to move the series between the Giants and the Seattle Mariners from T-Mobile Park in Seattle to Oracle Park in San Francisco.
“We appreciate the Giants’ willingness to work with us on this challenge, and we look forward to returning to T-Mobile Park on Friday to host the Padres,” Mariners president Kevin Mather said.
The Mariners, who split a doubleheader with the Oakland As on Monday night much to the dismay of As staff and players.
“I’m a healthy 22-year-old. I shouldn’t be gasping for air or missing oxygen. I’ll leave it at that,” said Jesus Luzardo, who started the opener for Oakland.
As manager Bob Melvin said that several players began to complain about the air as the game got into the later innings.
According to Mariners manager Scott Servais, he thought that the visibility and playability were fine on Monday night.
The Giants and Mariners will begin their two-game series on Wednesday night at 6:40 with the Mariners being the home team, and the two-game series will conclude on Thursday afternoon with the game beginning at 1:10.
