Following a weather delay of an hour, 55 minutes, Monday’s game between the visiting San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds was suspended with the game tied at 2-2
The game will be resumed 90 minutes prior to Tuesday’s regularly scheduled game, at 5:40 p.m. ET. The contest will pick up with San Francisco batting in the top of the eighth and runners on second and third and one out.
Before the rains came, the two teams combined for four solo home runs.
Giants starter Logan Webb held the Reds to four hits — including a pair of solo home runs — over seven innings, throwing just 86 pitches in the process. Webb was pulled after seven when the game entered the weather delay. He struck out even and walked none
It was San Francisco’s 14th straight game where their starters allowed three runs or less.
The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the first on Matt McLain’s eighth homer of the season, an opposite field, two-out shot to right. It also marked the first time Webb yielded a run to the Reds this season, covering 13 innings over three previous appearances and two starts
The Giants tied it when Austin Slater belted a Brandon Williamson pitch 442 feet off the power stacks in right-center with two outs in the third
Wilmer Flores belted his ninth homer to the seats in left to open the sixth and give the Giants a 2-1 lead
The two solo home runs were the only runs Williamson allowed over six innings, giving the rookie lefty his second career quality start.
Webb, coming off his first career complete game shutout on July 9, was in line for the win before India belted his 14th homer — tied for the team lead — with two outs in the seventh.
Heavy thunderstorms in the area delayed the game in the top of the eighth after Joc Pederson walked and Flores doubled him to third with none out against Reds reliever Alex Young. Michael Conforto grounded out to first, preventing the runners from scoring before the tarp was placed over the infield and the game halted
The game also marked the MLB debut of another highly touted Cincinnati prospect in Christian Encarnacion-Strand. The rookie, batting seventh and serving as the designated hitter, flew out to right in his first at-bat to end the second inning.
