The forecast was poor, but they managed to start Thursday’s Dodgers-Pirates game anyway.

They got in two innings before the deluge hit. And continued to fall, until after 2 hours and 22 minutes of a heavy downpour, they finally gave up and called it a night.

The Dodgers were leading 1-0 at the time, right-hander Jon Garland actually driving in the game’s only run with a second-inning single.

That will all be wiped out, however, the teams starting from scratch if they can figure out date to make up the game.

Because the Dodgers are not scheduled to play in Pittsburgh again this season, that won’t be easy. They are looking at July 14, which would be the second off-day after the All-Star break.

The Dodgers open the second half on July 15 at Arizona.

At least the Dodgers can come home feeling like they won the series, 2-1. The Dodgers open a seven-game homestand Friday against the Diamondbacks.
