A small earthquake hit San Francisco on Monday night during the Reds-Giants game. The players didn’t flinch and a pitch was delivered during the earthquake.
The NBC cameras picked it the earthquake and shook for about three seconds. The magnitude 3.5 earthquake wasn’t enough to stop play.

The Giants would go on to win the game 10-7. Who knew earthquakes wake up bats? I’m sure the Giants and their fans didn’t mind the offensive outburst.
Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who was at the plate when the earthquake hit, weighed in on it after the game. He jokingly blamed his lower back stiffness and early departure from the game on it.
