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

Giants-Padres games postponed after positive COVID-19 test

Jurickson Profar hit a go-ahead RBI single in the fifth inning and the San Diego Padres won their seventh straight game, 3-1 against the San Francisco Giants to sweep a doubleheader forced because of a false positive COVID-19 test.

Further testing was administered to the players and other members of the Giants traveling party on Saturday. The Giants did not make anyone available for comment on Friday night. Major League Baseball announced about 40 minutes later that Saturday's game between the teams was off, as well. It also would give Richards two extra days and Lamet an extra day of rest as the Padres enter the home stretch of the season.

Their game Sunday remains on for now. That would prevent the Padres from possibly needing a bullpen start in the third game of the Dodgers series. Dickerson had half-dozen more tests and, despite an emotional and physical ordeal, was back on the field Sunday, getting the first hit off Clevinger in the first inning.

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.

As the COVID-19 shortened regular season winds down, the Giants have rallied to a 23-22 overall mark and find themselves in contention for one of the eight National League post-season spots.

Cueto allowed six runs, four earned, and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out two and walked three.
