 PITTSBURGH (AP) -The two Giants-Pirates games rained out this month will be made up as a doubleheader Monday, Aug. 13.
The makeup doubleheader means the teams will play five games in two cities in four days. The teams play a regularly scheduled three-game series in San Francisco from Aug. 10-12, then will fly to Pittsburgh for two more games on the 13th.
The first game will start at 5:35 p.m. EDT and will begin what now becomes an eight-game homestand for the Pirates against the Giants, Mets and Phillies.
The Giants were rained out of games at PNC Park on April 14 and 15. The rainout on the 14th was rescheduled for a doubleheader on the 15th, but it was also called off.
