The Arizona Diamondbacks padded their now 7-game lead in the National League West over the weekend by taking 2 of 3 from the defending world champion San Francisco Giants. But all was not gloom and doom for Giants fans on Sunday, as the team hosted Star Wars Day, complete with a Brian Wilson carbonite figurine giveaway. Sadly, they opted to not run with the Pablo Sandoval the Hut action figures.
The game’s umpires were escorted onto the field by storm troopers, while fans pointed and yelled, “Haha, they’re the reason our season has been a huge letdown!” And sure, Arizona is 9-1 over the last 10 with a 3-game winning streak while the Giants sputter, but if all else fails, San Fran can just call up George Lucas and ask him to rewrite the game.
Some of the game’s costume highlights after the jump.
