CHICAGO -- The San Francisco Giants on Wednesday became the first team since 1986 to win a protest filed with Major League Baseball, and will now get to resume a rain-shortened game the Chicago Cubs thought they had won. Christian Okoye Jersey . MLB executive Joe Torre ruled on Tuesday nights game at Wrigley Field that was called after 4 1-2 innings. The Cubs were declared the winners by a 2-0 score. Now, it is instead a suspended game that will resume at 4:05 p.m. CDT Thursday with the Cubs batting in the bottom of the fifth. The playoff-contending Giants and Chicago have a regularly scheduled game set to begin three hours later. "I thought we had a strong case," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Im just thankful and grateful that they (MLB) were open minded. "They listened and they looked at it and I think its the fair thing to do." A short rainstorm caused a delay of more than 4 1-2 hours Tuesday after the grounds crew couldnt put the tarp down quickly. The umpires said the field was unplayable and called it at 1:16 a.m. MLB ruled that the tarp had not been properly put away after its previous use. Therefore, under provisions of Official Baseball Rule 4.12 (a) (3) there a "malfunction of a mechanical field device under control of the home club." Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer called it a "just" decision. "The last thing you want is a playoff team feeling bitter about the result here," Hoyer said. "And obviously it was caused by our organization. Its a good outcome." "Hopefully we win the game. We have a 2-0 lead and pick it up from there," he said. Hoyer said the Cubs had hoped all along to play a complete game on Tuesday night, and that the Wrigley Field grounds crew and the umpires were caught off-guard by a "weird weather pattern" and a lack of advance warning of the localized downpour. That resulted in the field "wetter than usual," according to Hoyer, who added there was no rain at his house, located 12 blocks away from Wrigley Field. Manager Rick Renteria agreed with Hoyer that the game should be completed. "I believe in karma, OK," Renteria said. "The league has made the decision that this is what should be done. Were going to abide by it and hopefully we go out there and finish it off." Bochy was grateful to the Cubs for their support. I really have to compliment the Cubs," he said. "They were all for this too. They wanted to do the right thing." Giants President Larry Baer said in a statement: "We appreciate Major League Baseballs careful review of our protest that will allow last nights game to be continued tomorrow." "We want to thank Commissioner Bud Selig, Commissioner-elect Rob Manfred, Executive Vice-President for Baseball Operations Joe Torre and the Chicago Cubs organization for their co-operation throughout this process," he said. The last time a team won a protest filed with MLB was June 16, 1986, when St. Louis played at Pittsburgh. There were two rain delays at Three Rivers Stadium, and the Pirates correctly contended those didnt meet the National Leagues 30-minute threshold for cancellation. MLB said in its statement that after watching video of the trouble at Wrigley Field and talking to Cubs representatives, "the Cubs inability to deploy the tarp appropriately was caused by the failure to properly wrap and spool the tarp after its last use." "As a result, the grounds keeping crew was unable to properly deploy the tarp after the rain worsened," MLB said. MLB said it talked with umpire crew chief Hunter Wendelstedt and that grounds crew worked hard to comply with his direction to get the field covered.
