I was pretty excited to see the Giants, especially Hunter Pence, who has provided several long caught homers for me as an Astro and Giant. This series started with a threat of rain, which turned out to pass after an afternoon shower.
During the Pirates portion of bp I didn’t get much going with only a Jordy Mercer scrum and Heberto Andrade toss up for Ball #1-2.
Rain seemed to be a possibility but the path of the clouds seemed to suggest that rain would pass when the Pirates left the field after bp. It would rain for no more then 5-10 minutes and the Pirates grounds crew called for the tarp. The tarp stayed on for a brief time after as the sun came back out and the clouds cleared.
This was a 4:05 start which was a packed house, I came away with one scrum on the steps to the upper bleachers by an unidentified Giant player. Ball #1.
A late and brief rain Friday coupled with Sat/Sun day games to follow made this a disappointing series.
