It’s true. There are rainouts in Southern California. Every once in a while, at least. With rain expected throughout the day in San Diego, the Dodgers’ series finale against the Padres has been rained out.
The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Saturday, Sept. 2.
This is just the third rainout in the history of Petco Park, which opened in 2004. The other two came on Apr. 4, 2006 against the Giants, and July 19, 2015 against the Rockies.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers haven’t had a game rained out at Dodger Stadium since Apr. 17, 2000, going a franchise record 1,390 consecutive games without a rainout. The club has had just two rainouts in the last 28 seasons in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers open a three-game series against the Pirates on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. Trevor Williams will start for the Pirates. The Dodgers havent yet announced their Monday starter.
