SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The San Francisco Giants’ opponents took an unusual ride to AT&T Park for Sunday’s game—a red double-decker bus usually reserved for tourists.
The San Diego Padres’ team bus didn’t show up Sunday morning in advance of the 1:05 p.m. game, so the team flagged down the tour bus and climbed on board.
With San Francisco’s Pride parade and celebration prompting the closure of many downtown streets, the bus was led by a San Francisco police escort to the ballpark.
Sunday’s game was as eventful as the road team’s trip there, with the Giants winning 3-2 in 11 innings on Hunter Pence’s two-run walkoff double.
