The San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs played 4 1/2 innings in 6 hours, 9 minutes. An unplayable field following a downpour led to the game being called off at 1:16 a.m. The teams had played just enough on Tuesday night for the Cubs to earn a rain-shortened 2-0 victory.
Third baseman Scott Rolen’s error with two outs in the 10th inning gave San Francisco the go-ahead run, and the Giants edged the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 Tuesday night to cut their NL playoff deficit to 2-1.
Barry Zito pitched 8 1-3 scoreless innings for his 150th career win and Joaquin Arias snapped an 18 at-bat hit-less stretch with an RBI single that led the San Francisco Giants to a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
