But when the teams could not agree on when to make up a rainout, they waited out the storm, so the Dodgers lost on Tuesday — at 2:11 a.m., to be exact.
The game also was tied 5-5 in the fifth — Yasiel Puig hit a 441-foot home run for the Dodgers — and 6-6 in the sixth, after an Rbi Double by Justin Turner.
When the AT&T Park public address announcer told fans, “We invite you to sit back and relax,” it was immediately followed by an angry blast of thunder.
Less impressive was the Dodgers’ decision to keep Bellinger in the lineup after the rain delay, playing the outfield on wet grounds, a seemingly imprudent risk of injury for the cleanup batter as the calendar approaches October.
Bellinger, in fact, slipped while chasing Buster Posey’s RBI double in the seventh inning.
