The delay happened between the second and third innings. Giants pitcher Carlos Rodon stayed in the game after the delay but only lasted four innings, leaving the game after allowing five runs.
The delay was the game’s second. Home plate umpire Marvin Hudson was forced to leave the game after slipping while tracking a foul pop-up. Second base umpire John Tumpane took Hudson’s place behind home plate.
