The Marlins scored three runs across the eighth and ninth innings to lead, only for Atlanta to draw level 8-8 with three runs in the bottom of the ninth. Just substitute Darvish for Urias, who broke down, and the plan still holds. The schedule also includes several other days that will turn into full days off at home because of getaway day travel plans.

"It ended up being a nice night", Bochy said.

Might be worth a shot. The Giants did lose 16-of-19 earlier this year, but who cares, we're ragging on the Dodgers. Even though they won 13 straight games heading into this past Friday, they lost two of three to the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers are still 3.5 games up on the Nationals for the best record in the NL and the postseason home-field advantage that comes with it, but that lead was much more significant not all that long ago: Following Aug. 25's games, Los Angeles had 91 wins and the Nats had 76. If Watson proves himself as a valuable arm, the Dodgers may keep him as a cheaper reliever. There'll be an MRI on Monday in Phoenix.

With the 3-2 victory on Sunday and the Dodgers loss to the Colorado Rockies the same day, the Diamondbacks are now just nine games behind the skidding L.A. team.

Potential downside: The lost opportunity against Northern Colorado and a shorter week of practice after the storm leaves the Gators less than ready for their SEC debut.

Starters and relievers combined have a 5.99 ERA over the last 17 games, giving up 101 runs (98 earned) over that span.

After a three game set with the Pirates, the Brewers will be off to Miami. There aren't too many position players that would be worth shelling out money too, and besides that, the Dodgers have more than enough depth to fill out each position with in house replacements.

In his first appearance since then, Baez inherited a 6-6 tie in the sixth inning.

Kenta Maeda, the Dodgers' starter, had prepared to take the mound around 7 o'clock.

A pretty great tradition, isn't it?

Bochy, who before the game described the two one-sided road losses to the White Sox as perhaps the team's poorest performances of the season, was pleased with his players' response.

Of course, Stratton was done for the night.

Posey's double provided an insurance run one inning later against Dodgers left-hander Tony Watson, scoring Span, who had walked. The rain started after batting practice, and lighting and thunder soon followed.

First pitch was delayed 40 minutes.

Elsewhere in the state, the Florida International football team remains in Birmingham, Ala., where it fled from the storm. A hardy group of loyal fans stayed until the final out. A cashier tells me she's been at the stadium since 3 p.m. I wish her good luck but I have no idea what that would look like at this point.

About 1,100 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes were reported across the Bay Area, with most of the activity occurring after 6 p.m. and over the water.

The Dodgers are the first team in baseball history to win 15 of 16 and then lose 15 of 16.

"Right now, it's probably wavering a little bit", Roberts said. Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who was more of a punch line in his rookie season than an actual NFL player, looked downright competent.

"I think (the slider) is getting there", he said.
