Giants-Mariners series PPD due to poor air quality

The Seattle Mariners have postponed a two-game series with the San Francisco Giants because of poor air quality in Seattle due to wildfires that have devastated the region.

The games originally scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday nights at T-Mobile Park will be made up on Sept. 16-17 at Oracle Park in San Francisco. Game times for those dates have not been determined.

Several players reported difficulty breathing Monday during the Mariners’ doubleheader against the Oakland A’s.

“Unfortunately, the air quality in Seattle has gotten worse overnight here at T-Mobile Park and it is not clearing at all today. Forecasters expect it to clear late Thursday and into Friday morning,” Mariners president and chief operating officer Kevin Mather said in a news release on Tuesday.

“As always, the health and safety of the players, and our staff is our first priority. To assure the games could be played, the best solution was to re-locate to the Bay Area. We appreciate the Giants’ willingness to work with us on this challenge, and we look forward to returning to T-Mobile Park on Friday to host the Padres.”
