Cubs beat Giants 2-1 in suspended game

Cubs beat Giants 2-1 in suspended game

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) - After two days, the first upheld protest in nearly 30 years and another rain storm, the Chicago Cubs finally completed a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants in a suspended game on Thursday night.

Anthony Rizzo's two-run homer Tuesday held up as the team's played the final 4 1/2 innings of a game the Cubs thought they had won 2-0 before Major League Baseball ruled was suspended.

A short rainstorm caused a delay of more than 4 1/2 hours after the grounds crew couldn't put the tarp down quickly. The umpires said the field was unplayable and called it at 1:16 a.m. But the Giants protested, and MLB ruled that the tarp had not been properly put away after its previous use, the first upheld protest since 1986. The game was suspended.

Thursday's start was delayed 1 hour, 57 minutes by another downpour before Chicago could bat in the bottom of the fifth.

Joe Panik had an RBI single in the sixth to pull the Giants to 2-1.
