After a one-hour, 55-minute delay due to rain, the San Francisco Giants and Cincinnati Reds' series-opening game was called off with two runs scored and one out in the top of the eighth inning. There are runners on second and third for the Giants, who have won five consecutive games and six in a row.
In a terrifying occurrence, a Reds guy from the crew got caught in a tarp that was placed on the ground due to rain. The people around him ignored his frantic attempts to crawl away and showed no mercy. As the wind picked up, the scenario took a perilous turn, making his battle much more challenging. But just as all hope seemed gone, a watchful bystander saw the man's plight and sprang to his rescue.
