Major League Baseball postpones two Padres-Giants games after positive COVID-19 test

Giants-Padres games postponed after positive COVID-19 test

Out of an abundance of caution, Major League Baseball postponed Friday and Saturday's games between the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres at Petco Park after a Giants player tested positive for the coronavirus.

Clevinger (3-2) struck out seven and walked one in seven innings for his second career complete game. They previously got swept in a doubleheader by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was making his third start since coming over from Cleveland in a blockbuster trade on August 31.

The Giants had a meek offensive showing Sunday afternoon in the first of two games with the San Diego Padres, losing 6-0 and failing to get anything going against trade deadline acquisition Mike Clevinger. But the Padres didn't take the field and the team announced the game had been postponed.

"The MLB-MLBPA Joint Committee, in conjunction with each team's medical staff, reviews all positive COVID-19 tests on an individual basis to determine how each case should be handled in order to ensure the health and safety of the players and Club personnel", a statement from MLB said Sunday.

Dickerson said the news of the positive test "came as a complete shock and at no point did I ever think it was real".

The first two runs scored when Cueto grooved a two-out fastball in the second inning and Greg Garcia redirected it into left field.

The Padres and the Giants are scheduled to face each other at Oracle Park from September 25-27 in their final series of the season.
