Dodgers, Pirates Washed Out

PITTSBURGH - MAY 12: Lightning strikes near PNC Park after a rain delay was issued at the start of the third inning between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Los Angeles Dodgers at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In an alternate universe one may have observed Dodger starting pitcher Jon Garland collect a two-out RBI single to right field in the second inning to plate Dioner Navarro, who had doubled, and stake himself to a 1-0 lead in Pittsburgh, but in the baseball universe nothing happened today as the game was officially called due to rain at the start of the third inning. This decision was likely influenced by the fact that both teams are traveling for tomorrow's games.

No makeup date has been announced. This might be a natural to put into the "schedule if needed category", but I suspect both the Pirates and Frank McCourt need whatever additional revenue might be generated from the gate of a makeup game.

Also, no word yet if the two nonexistent innings Garland "pitched" will count toward his incentive clauses or vesting option.

Tomorrow's game: 7:10 P.M. in Los Angeles with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Probable starters are Joe Saunders and Clayton Kershaw.
