The wait for a Dodgers win will have to wait at least one more day. The series opener against the Giants was postponed on Friday due to heavy rain in San Francisco. This is the first rainout at AT&T Park since April 12, 2006.

Friday’s game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Saturday, April 28 when the Dodgers are back in San Francisco, with the first game at 1:05 p.m. PT and the second game at 7:05 p.m.

The two teams will attempt to play at AT&T Park on Saturday with the game time moved to 3:05 p.m., with more rain in the forecast earlier in the day. Saturday’s game was originally scheduled for 1:05 p.m.

Kenta Maeda was slated to pitch Friday night, but instead won’t start in this series.

From the Giants side, they have moved would-be Friday starter Derek Holland out of this series as well:

Weather has made quite a dent in Dodgers scheduled even including their minor league affiliates. Triple-A Oklahoma City saw its Friday game in Iowa postponed on Thursday in anticipation of frigid temperatures, and Class-A Great Lakes not only had its Friday game postponed by snow showers but also lost a home game, as the contest will be made up with a doubleheader on Sunday on the road in Lansing.
