Dodgers-Giants postponed by rain, rescheduled as doubleheader on April 28

- Heavy rains expected in the San Francisco Bay Area prompted the cancellation of the San Francisco Giants-Los Angeles Dodgers game scheduled for Friday night. Through six games, the five-time All-Star and former NL MVP with the Pittsburgh Pirates was 2-for-24 with nothing to show in the home run, RBI or stolen base column.

McCutchen's home run came on a 95-mile per hour inside fastball from righty Wilmer Font, and as he said Sunday, "Nowadays, all you have to do is touch it".

This is the Giants' 33rd rainout since moving to San Francisco in 1958.

Panik also played a role in Saturday's win, contributing a single to the Giants' three-run 14th inning.

Buster Posey also homered for the Giants, who wasted leads of 1-0, 3-1 and 4-3 before winning on McCutchen's shot.

Roberto Gomez retired three batters for his first major-league win.

The Giants' victory rewarded the brilliant work from a bullpen quartet of Tony Watson, Hunter Strickland and rookies Pierce Johnson and Reyes Moronta. McCutchen never reached a full count, instead fouling off eight pitches in order to keep the Giants' hopes alive. McCutchen drove in four runs and raised his batting average from.083 to.258 in his first season with San Francisco. The Dodgers had taken a 5-4 lead in the top part of the inning but the Giants quickly added runners at the corners to lead off their half of the inning, then McCutchen struck. But with two outs and the Dodgers out of position players, manager Bruce Bochy had Moronta intentionally walk Enrique Hernandez, forcing Los Angeles skipper Dave Roberts to use a pitcher as a pinch hitter.

The Giants got a three-run, walk-off homer from Andrew McCutchen on Saturday night for a 7-5 victory in a game that started in the middle of the afternoon and finished under the lights 5 hours, 16 minutes later.

The Dodgers are 2-6, matching their worst start since 1976. After Sam Dyson allowed a Chase Utley solo home run to even the score, Watson preserved a 4-4 tie by preventing Puig and Bellinger from doing more damage with a runner in scoring position in the seventh.

Posey's home run off starter Rich Hill was the first of the season for the Giants cleanup hitter and first since August 8, 2017.
