Rain drenching the field during the final inning of Game 7 in San Francisco last night made for some weird celebrating from the Giants and their fans while also creating this cool, Andy Dufresne-like moment involving NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro:

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
