Like kissing your sister?

Well, THAT was kind of a waste -- a 2-2 game postponed in the 6th inning. At least the good guys got out of stupid Denver with only one loss.

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area says the umps made the right decision--

This much is for sure: Both clubs already had used their starters and their long relievers. And both clubs will have 40-man rosters full of September call-ups when they meet again.
For player safety, this was the only sensible move.
The Rockies had to fly to Atlanta, where they will play Friday night. So they didn’t want to wait around for hours and hours hoping more thunderstorm cells wouldn’t materialize. And the Giants couldn’t have felt good about stopping and starting catcher Buster Posey a few more times after he missed the previous two games because of an irritated nerve in his back.
Posey collided with first baseman Michael Morse while catching a foul pop, too. Earlier this year, Posey collided with Paul Goldschmidt at first base. Does he ever luck out and run into an Altuve? Guess not.
