Game 2 of Wednesday’s doubleheader entered into a rain delay in the fifth inning with the Atlanta Braves trailing the San Diego Padres 5-4. The tarp is on the field and we will pass along updates here as soon as they become available.

That was quick.
They're removing the tarp at Truist Park.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) July 21, 2021
We have a restart time of 8 p.m.
The approximate restart time for tonight's game is 8 pm.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) July 21, 2021
The tarp is going back on the field so forget about that 8 p.m. start time.
Seconds after the announced that plan, heavy rain began.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) July 21, 2021
The grounds crew is rolling out the tarp as this is typed. https://t.co/qrgAwBhwme
Unfortunately the tarp is once again going on the field and tonight's game will not restart at 8. https://t.co/2dSpj9QLk3— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) July 21, 2021
Settle in folks...looks like this rain delay could go on for quite a while. #Braves— Kevin McAlpin (@KevinMcAlpin) July 22, 2021
Not an update
Update: There is no update, other than the warning track is now an actual river.— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) July 22, 2021
Umpires walking back to their locker room now. They didn’t have an umbrella on the walk over to the Braves side. pic.twitter.com/AIa8Qc6pBA— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) July 22, 2021

The umpires and managers just met in front of the Braves dugout. The rain has lightened. We may get an update soon.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) July 22, 2021
Braves coaches and players coming to get their belongings out of dugout.— Kevin Acee (@sdutKevinAcee) July 22, 2021
Rain has lightened, but it's still coming down here at Truist Park & the forecast doesn't look great. The umpires & both managers met moments ago -- players & equipment staff on both sides starting to pack up & take their things. Still no "official" word on the status— Kelly Crull (@Kelly_Crull) July 22, 2021
Tonight’s game has been suspended. No word yet on when it will be resumed.
